Liz had battled addiction through a rehab program in the summer of 2015 and was in recovery for 19 months when she relapsed and died from heroin laced fentanyl during a bout with depression. She leaves behind her finance Kyle and her then 9-month-old son Carson. Liz was a loving, warm, beautiful and funny young woman who was a very talented beautician who loved making her clients feel special and beautiful on the inside and out.

In the wake of Liz's untimely death, her family started the I Care Foundation for Elizabeth (Liz) Loranzo, a non-profit organization dedicated to providing a voice for addicts and addiction; educating parents and loved ones; help for those battling depression, anxiety, domestic abuse and alcoholism; and is committed to saving lives. The Foundation promotes Compassion, Advocacy, Recovery and Education (CARE).
