Eliza lost her battle with opioid addiction on her 26th birthday. She died alone, on the couch in the family living room. Her family close by but unaware, Narcan® in the kitchen drawer. In Eliza’s spirit of helping others, Eliza’s Watch attempts to make sure someone has your back if you are using alone.
If you are using alone – you need someone to watch over you in the case of an overdose. Eliza’s Watch will monitor your vital signs and alert a friend, family, care giver and emergency Medical Services (EMS).
Eliza did not let addiction define her. She was a full time college student and worked a rewarding job serving the elderly. She was smart, beautiful and funny, but above all, compassionate about helping others.
