Micky Ward and Dicky Eklund speak about substance abuse

Micky Ward and Dicky Eklund were the guest speakers at a fundraising gala to benefit an organization dedicated to the prevention and treatment of adolescent substance abuse.  Both shared their personal stories about how substance abuse affected their lives, and offered support and inspiration to those in the audience who are similarly affected.  Their telling of the story of their rise and fall… and rise again, as was depicted in the critically acclaimed film, The Fighter, resounded with the audience, making the event a huge success.
