John and Stephanie came on the show to share their heartbreaking story, call attention to, and work toward solving the problem of parents losing children to the disease of addiction. The organization that they founded in their sons name is the EvanG Foundation. It is found at The following is from their website.

The Evan foundation was organized in 2014 -15 after founders, John & Stephanie Greene, lost their son, Evan, to an opiate overdose. Like so many others, Evan’s journey began with one pill offered by a peer. That one pill led to a horrible addiction that ultimately ended his life.

John & Stephanie bravely share Evan’s Story as part of a comprehensive program that includes an educational component presented by a Massachusetts State Trooper & Drug Recognition Expert, and an awareness component presented by a recovering addict.

The No First Time 45 minute presentation and 15-minute question and answer period are designed to educate young people on the danger of experimenting with drugs and engaging in risky behavior.
