About The Founder Of Projectslb
On November 23, 2011 Tricia and Michael Kyers lives forever changed when Tricia found her son Sonny Blosser, 19, in his bedroom dead from an apparent asphyxiation. Unfortunately Sonny was not able to be revived and his young life was cut short from a senseless, preventable act.
In October 2012 the Project SLB Foundation was founded by Tricia and Michael in memory of their son. While trying to understand their unthinkable loss, Tricia and Michael knew they had to take action in their community to prevent such a tragedy from happening to another family.
Sonny was a vibrant young man whose smile and personality had your heart from the very beginning. His death not only shocked the family, but his friends and community as a whole. No one saw this tragedy coming and by no means did anyone see any signs related to suicide. After all, why would we?
This was a young man who seemed to truly love his life, family and friends. We did not see the turmoil on the inside - what we saw was a young man that was always smiling, and seemingly happy. Looking back, like many others, we wish we had been educated on the signs of suicide, but we had missed them. One of the greatest reasons why Project SLB Foundation was founded.
