Kate Miller captured the energy from the grief of a personal tragedy and harvested it into something that would help others. When her only child, Cody, complained about seasonal allergies during the summer of 2007, their doctor gave him Singulair, a new prescription that was used to treat symptoms of asthma and allergies. After only 17 days on the medication, Cody hung himself. With no history of emotional problems, his death left his friends and family searching for answers.
Grief stricken but unwavering in her commitment, Ms. Miller and her husband researched suicide extensively. They found that, just months earlier, depression was found by researchers to be determined as a possible psychological side e effect on adults and children taking Singulair.
