This is dedicated to Travis Holappa who was kidnapped, tortured and murdered on July 25, 2004 in Northern Minnesota. This was all due to meth. I am Travis' mother and I wish to make this devastation turn into a better thing by educating and exposing the truth about meth, the dangers, and the deadly consequences it brings about to individuals and communities.

I want to do what I can to educate people about what is going on around the world with the meth problem. I want people to know about it BEFORE they even get the idea to want to try it. It is a dangerous drug and will ruin your life as well as all those who love you. I am on a mission on behalf of my only son, Travis.

Health Concerns

My daughter, April has given me permission to write this. She has been clean from Meth since last November. She started having low blood pressure right after she stopped shooting it. She has been to see a cardiologist about this and after much testing, they have said that she has drained out her adrenal gland. I don't know if that is the exact wording, but now she will have to be on medication the rest of her life in order to have normal blood pressure again.

She has told me, "Mom, I did this to myself". I just thought people should be aware of a weird side effect of meth abuse. I wish people could wake up and see what they are doing to themselves and all those that love them.
