Lori Sullivan Co-Founder Of RIR Celebrates 19 Years Clean and Sober

“A True Beacon Of What Real Recovery Looks Like”

It’s Amazing to watch Lori’s faith over her 19 years of continues sobriety one day at a time. Since having been diagnosis with Her2 Positive Left Breast Cancer on April 6, 2018, that has also spread into her lymph nodes under her left armpit. Lori has with dignity and grace, through her long term recovery of 19 years (09/14/99), been able to walk through the most horrific circumstances. Two Lumpectomies (cause they missed the margins on the first one). Two rounds of chemo therapy so far out of six she will be doing. Lori said after her second chemo treatment “Four more to go” , always positive and a smile with a treatment that has the worst side affects I’ve ever seen. She helps me to see the true understanding of mad, sad or glad we don’t pick up no matter what. Lori is doing the chemo treatments every 21 days, her next one is September 20, 2018. She has done this one day at a time without picking up a huge example of her trust in God and  living a daily program of recovery, as she says “His Will Be Done.”  When she finishes chemo around December 2018, she will then start 5 days a week for 6 weeks of radiation treatments. Lori is a great mother of four, a great friend to people, and a inspiration of hope to many.
Congratulations and happy anniversary Lori. We love you and thank you for all you have done over almost two decades of helping others and being a true beacon of what real recovery looks like.
With All Our Love,
John and Christopher Hollis
