Victoria's Voice

“Our daughter’s legacy is that her death will save thousands of other people’s lives”—that’s the commitment by her parents, David and Jackie Siegel, and their reason for publishing her diary, teen slang, bad language and all.  Victoria’s diary, in her own hand and featuring her own art, is bookended by an expert foreword and intros by her parents before Victoria’s actual diary, and then medical advice, tips, and resources following her diary.”

Victoria's Voice Foundation

A drug overdose took the life of Victoria Siegel on June 6, 2015, in her parents’ home near Orlando. She was 18.Victoria was one of 129 Americans to die from a drug overdose that day in 2015.That tragic rate only rose. 200 Americans a day died from a drug overdose in 2017. We need to do something.
