personal story of involvement with MADD

daughter Jennifer in a teenage DUI crash in Carmichael, CA.
Of the many services MADD
provides, Judy states that the victim support groups are the best kept secret, a secret she
would like to let out.
In addition to victim support, there are programs to encourage zero tolerance for underage drinking as well as community candlelight vigils in tribute to victims/survivors of drunk driving crashes.
The next Candle Light Vigil scheduled in this area will be held on December 3rd in Lathrop.
