Billie Lourd found out what killed her mother, Carrie Fisher and was NOT ASHAMED. She used her voice to speak on what her mother wanted her to speak on...GETTING PEOPLE HELP! We are so quick to judge without knowing the struggle. Imagine if our focus was not just to build wealth, but to HELP and love our neighbor.
Billie Lourd released this statement to People:
"My mom battled drug addiction and mental illness her entire life,'' Lourd said. "She ultimately died of it. She was purposefully open in all of her work about the social stigmas surrounding these diseases.
"She talked about the shame that torments people and their families confronted by these diseases. I know my Mom, she’d want her death to encourage people to be open about their struggles. Seek help, fight for government funding for mental health programs. Shame and those social stigmas are the enemies of progress to solutions and ultimately a cure. Love you Momby."
