Gary Mendell shares his story about the death of his son, Brian and the birth of Shatterproof.org on Sober Conversations

Today’s conversation is with Mr. Gary Mendell, Chairman and CEO of Shatterproof.org. Gary’s son, Brian lost his battle with addiction when Gary said, ENOUGH! Shatterproof.org, formerly Brian’s Wish was created to honor Brian’s memory with the promise to spare other families the anguish of this disease. The now, “stronger than addiction”, very present and robust organization’s vision is to unite and empower, to end the stigma, to advocate for change and to research and innovate. As you’ll hear, first and foremost, Mr. Mendell’s Heart and then keen business sense and plan, have led him to gain the attention of such change agents as the Bill Clinton Global Initiative and the Clinton Health Matters Initiative.
