Talk About Ty

Hi I'm Shelby Salazar, the founder of the non-profit Talk About Ty. My brother is Tyler 'Ty' Hughes who unknowingly ingested a pill that was given to him by a friend. That pill had a lethal dose of fentanyl. Our family, friends, myself, and Ty knew nothing about fentanyl.

That's why I started this non-profit. I truly believe had my brother known the ratio of him getting a pill laced with fentanyl is 2:3 he would not have taken the risk. I'm here to pour out as many statics, resources, and personal accounts that I hope will be shared.

I do speak publicly at schools and other events. I try to convey the message of Fentanyl awareness & that it can happen to anyone. I hope you enjoy exploring this page! Before you leave gain some knowledge, buy some merch, and if there are any questions just send an email my way.

Thanks for stopping by! 


Let's get to talking!
