Lucky and Blessed.
Life for Reign, her family and loved ones were forever changed on August 20, 2020. This day her 23-year-old son Antoine that was affectionately called Lucky, took his own life. He suffered from Bipolar Depression.
Reign is dedicated to being a voice of the silenced, who suffers from any mental illness. She believes she will help others with his story. She is currently in pre-production on a documentary called Lucky and Blessed. This will not only talk about the light her son was to this earth but his condition and how mental illness in minority communities is this unspoken secret that we sometimes believe we can pray away. Her mission is to let people know that mental illness is real, and it is ok to seek help for it like any other disease.
message from Reign:
First and foremost, thank you for coming to the Lucky and Blessed page. Unfortunately, my son story is not unheard of, according to the CDC Suicide is the SECOND leading cause of death for ages 10-24. More teenagers and young adults die from suicide than from cancer, heart disease, AIDS, birth defects, stroke, pneumonia, influenza, and chronic lung disease, COMBINED.
My mission is to be a voice in minority communities, who suffer in silence. My son Lucky was the happiest person in the room. He was my rebel with the golden heart and bright smile, a light to this world and he shined for 23 years. It will be hard to meet a person who had encountered my son and he did not make them smile at some point.
But as happy as he was, he had a dark side that few had seen. He struggled with Bipolar Depression and when that depression reared its ugly head, he believed he didn’t matter to anyone, including himself.
In his honor I am in pre-production on a documentary called Lucky and Blessed, where I will serve as Executive Director. This documentary will be a resource and give information on how to acknowledge, address and get help for mental illness. The Lucky and Blessed documentary will also shed light on the unspoken secret of mental illness in minority communities. With this documentary we will educate and encourage our communities to remove the stigma and shame on addressing and getting help for mental illness.
