WAUSAU – On July 20, 2015, Gabrielle Campo, the daughter of Jeffrey Campo, succumbed to her addictions.At 23, the young woman left behind a young son, a grieving sibling and a father who — in his own words — “faded away” after finding out about the fatal overdose of heroin that took his child from him so quickly.
Many don’t overcome the death of a loved one. A 2016 report published in The Independent details what scientists call “complicated grief,” where the pain and sorrow of bereavement simply doesn’t go away with time. But Jeffrey Campo, of Mosinee, has been using his experience to help those who are struggling with the addiction that took his daughter just three years ago.
