As you may have noticed, it’s been awhile since I’ve written an article for FiveMoms.com. So, I wanted to take a moment and let you know that while I am incredibly thankful to have been a part of this amazing campaign, my role as a Five Mom has come to a close and I’ll be taking some time to focus my energy on myself and my family.

I am really going to miss being one of the Five Moms, and want to thank each and every one of you for your support and kind words over the years! Even though I’m no longer one of the Five Moms, the campaign will remain very dear to my heart and cough medicine abuse will be a cause I continue to support.

I would like to congratulate the campaign as it celebrates its four year anniversary this month, and am excited to share that in conjunction with the anniversary, the campaign has launched a search for the next Five Mom! Additional information on the search will be available on the Five Moms website next week. I encourage you to nominate a Mom (or yourself!) committed to protecting our teens and spreading awareness about medicine abuse. In the meantime, we’re excited to have some great Moms share their stories, tips, and advice in an upcoming guest contributor series, so stay tuned.

Thank you again for your support over the past four years. It’s because of you that we’re able to keep our teens safe and substance-free. Being a part of the Five Moms campaign has been such a special opportunity, and I wish all the Moms nothing but the best!

Sincerely,

Hilda
