  1. Hello. My name is Dennis Hill. Five years ago, my daughter tragically took her own life as she battled the ravages of a heroin addiction and untreated mental illness. This past year, I have started a movement here in Madison,WI. called Journey For Chandra in her memory. Within the last year, I have written my daughter’s story that has been posted to various web sites. I speak to many different groups and organizations about her story, what I learned having lived her nightmare, and my recommendations to effect change. You can see of my work and her story on her Facebook page called “Journey For Chandra.” I am looking for opportunities to expand my territory. Partnering with and through other organizations that are aligned with what I am doing. Recently, I did some brainstorming work with the National Security Council in Chicago and they highly recommended your program. God bless you for what you are doing, and I look forward to hearing from you in the future.
