I want people to feel comfortable enough to confront these issues so that we as a community can help one another

With the addition of an epilogue which shows readers how she has dealt with the tragedy of losing her daughter and her journey since then, “It Can Happen to Any Family: How Drugs Took My Daughter's Life” (published by Inspiring Voices) is author Cynthia Doucette's revamped attempt to reach families before it is too late.

Cynthia Doucette’s world was rocked one day when she found out that her daughter Candice had been diagnosed with depression. This began a quest to find out why her daughter was depressed and how to go about bringing her out of that depression. Sadly, the answers did not come fast enough for Candice, and she turned to drugs to fix her problems.

Readers will follow Doucette as she brings them into the ups and downs of trying to work, raise a family and deal with an illness that just would not leave – a family that has to continue their everyday life while witnessing a loved one going down the wrong path.

“I want readers to understand that I wrote this story to help others understand that they are not alone in these types of situations,” says Doucette. “I want people to feel comfortable enough to confront these issues so that we as a community can help one another.
