Barbara Legere’s son Keven often begged for her permission to end his own life — like any loving mother, she did everything in her power to preserve his life. Keven spent half his life struggling with addiction while his single mom battled the courts, health care companies, rehab facilities, and mental health professionals who had all but abandoned Kevin. While she navigated the dark worlds of her son’s depression and substance abuse, Barbara also felt guilt about what she could have done differently to save his life. When Ken did take his own life, Barbara became an advocate for parents who are witnesses to overdoses, arrests, addiction treatment, incarceration, and most terrible, the death of a child. Keven’s Choice is Barbara’s intimate memoir of a mother’s grief, a mother’s way of showing that it’s possible and even necessary to go on, even amidst the unimaginable.
