Kathy Ireland is the president and the founder of the Kathy Ireland foundation. She has been actively involved in educating people regarding their health and how to increase their quality of life.
Kathy and Eric were of the opinion that at the backdrop of the coronavirus pandemic, the opioid epidemic is raging and has gone sky-high. Due to the severe virus which engulfed the whole world in its harrowing shadows complimenting with death, people have become more protective for their loved ones and want to take precautionary measures even if they sneeze.
The use of painkillers has increased across the globe resulting in the opioid epidemic. They are people who realize this and are combating this silent illness on their own.
Kathy Ireland ensured people that they are not alone in fighting against the opioid epidemic. They are in this battle together. They will fight and help each other to come out of this dark phase.
