Her performance resonated deeply with listeners, igniting a spark of inspiration in the hearts of all who listened.

In an exclusive Q&A, Jennalyn shared her thoughts on being part of such a meaningful event. “It’s truly an honor to be asked to perform at the STOMP! Fentanyl event,” she expressed. “This cause is incredibly close to my heart. I’ve witnessed firsthand the devastating effects of addiction, as one of my childhood best friends has struggled with it on and off.” Her candid reflection sheds light on the personal connections that drive artists like Jennalyn to use their platform for positive change.

She also shed light on the inspiration behind her latest single, “Under Your Skin,” which she described as holding a special place in her heart. “I wrote it for a horror film I was involved in over the summer,” she explained. “I’m thrilled to be performing it live for the first time at this event!” Her willingness to share her creative process adds depth to her performance, illustrating the power of music to transcend mediums and connect with audiences on a profound level.

Facts on Fentanyl Forum coming Oct. 25

By Rosemary Lewallen

A 14-year-old boy took a pill which he thought was OxyContin. He purchased it off social media and it was delivered to his home. The pill actually contained Fentanyl, a cheap, highly addictive and lethal alternative. The boy died that night. This horror story is not a Halloween tale. It is how Alexander Hastings Neville died on June 23, 2020.

Please attend the “Facts on Fentanyl Forum” on Wednesday, October 25th from 6 to 8:30 p.m. at St. Irenaeus Parish Hall at 5201 Evergreen Ave., Cypress, CA 90630. Our speaker is Amy Neville, Alexander’s mother and Founder of the Alexander Neville Foundation. She will give information about the dangers of Fentanyl, and talk about how we can protect our kids, friends and associates from Fentanyl poisoning. This free forum is sponsored by St. Irenaeus’ Faith Community Nurse, Jennifer Dagarag, as part of Health Ministry. Refreshments will be offered.

We invite parents and students to come to this important forum. Fentanyl has caused the recent death of a toddler in a New York City daycare plus the sickness of two other children who were revived by Narcan after playing on a mat where Fentanyl had been placed hours earlier. This deadly substance is a threat to everyone. Learn how you can save a life. Call Nurse Jennifer if you have any questions at 714-826-0760.

“Fight Fentanyl” on October 7th. This event is dedicated to raising both awareness and crucial funds to address this urgent health crisis.

FentanylSolution.org’s mission revolves around education, awareness, and advocacy. They aim to protect individuals from the risks of fentanyl-contaminated substances and provide resources and support for those affected by the epidemic.

Fentanyl, a substance alarmingly potent, has become the leading cause of death for Americans aged 18-45. In 2022, California witnessed its highest number of fatalities due to fentanyl, with 6,095 lives tragically cut short. This equates to 117 Californians every week. On a national scale, the statistics are equally harrowing, with 250 deaths reported daily.

The threat of fentanyl isn’t isolated to those struggling with addiction. A significant number of counterfeit pills on the market are tainted with fentanyl, endangering unsuspecting individuals, including teenagers.

Janice M. Celeste, the President & CEO of FentanylSolution.org, remarked, “The challenge we face is monumental, but with community engagement and support, we can turn the tide. This event symbolizes our collective effort to combat this crisis.”

The “Fight Fentanyl” event at Craft Boxing Club promises to be more than just an awareness campaign. Attendees will have the opportunity to participate in workout classes, savory food, and gain essential knowledge about the perils of fentanyl.

As FentanylSolution.org and Craft Boxing Club join forces to combat the fentanyl crisis, they urge the community to be a part of this vital cause.
