Morgan began drinking and smoking in college and then moved on to harder drugs.

“I would use a lot. It wasn’t just a small amount, it was a large amount and I could never have enough. I always needed more. Where my friends would be stopping, I would keep going.”


Morgan says a miracle led her to treatment and when she received an Emily’s Hope Treatment Scholarship, she knew that Emily was looking out for her. She calls Emily her guardian angel.

22-year-old Morgan was a couple of years younger than Emily, but went to the same high school and was part of the gymnastics team. She says Emily was always encouraging her.
