In conversation with Action News anchor, Jim Gardner

On the eve of the biggest professional risk of her life—running for a seat in the Pennsylvania House of Representatives—Madeleine Dean discovered that her son, Harry Cunnane, was battling a severe painkiller addiction. What followed was a family struggle fought by countless American families caught in the grip of the opioid epidemic. Told with candor through the dual perspectives of mother and son, Under Our Roof offers a first-hand look at this public health crisis. Concurrently publishing with Under Our Roof is You Are Always Loved: A Story of Hope, a child’s companion to the adult memoir. This is a picture book, featuring an evergreen message about hope and unconditional love.

Dean currently serves as the U.S. Representative for Pennsylvania’s fourth congressional district and Cunnane works as a resource director at the same treatment center at which he initially sought help for his addiction.
