12 Days of Kindness: They saved her life, so we crash a meeting to say thank you

Watch as we deliver an act of kindness for the staff of Monarch Recovery Services (and surprise the woman who nominated them at the same time, but ssh, it's a secret)

Butterflies symbolize a new beginning, a new life. That's exactly what Monarch Recovery Services has done for many men and women in our community who are struggling with addiction.

Sherry Fillion says she owes her life to the heroes who work at Monarch Recovery Services.

After the death of her first daughter, Chloe, Sherry turned to drugs to numb the pain. 

In hopes of getting her life back, Sherry decided to move from Cobalt, Ont., to Sudbury to enroll in Monarch's recovery program.

Sherry reached out to us to help her say thank you to the people who saved her life.

Watch as we crash a meeting at Monarch Recovery Services to deliver an act of kindness for the staff, as well as deliver a special surprise for Sherry herself.

If you or someone you love is struggling with addiction visit for more information on Monarch's recovery programs. 

Special thank you to Leslie's Charbroil & Grill and Classic Catering for treating the staff to lunch. Thank you to Canadian Tire for making Sherry's day.
