Mama June used her fame for good and helped raise money for the family of a friend who passed away after they met in rehab.

Last week, the reality star took to social media to mourn the loss of her friend Eric. June asked her followers to donate to a GoFundMe set up for his family.

She wrote, “heart is very heavy today as we lost a great person yesterday morning 2 to the ugly disease called addiction he was going places he was only 22 and had so much of big plans here in Florida n one relapse cause his life to end I remember sitting in the rooms at rehab and he would always ask a put me on your show he would always be rapping about his struggles with addiction and he would also be talking about his daughter all the time she was his world he had so many plans.”

The GoFundMe read, “This fund was created for our beloved friend Eric and his beautiful daughter, Willow, designed to help with education expenses in her future. I am heart broken to say but Eric has moved on to looking down upon us. He was a strong, smart, kind hearted soul that walked this earth and was able to be of support to so many people. He battled day and night against this viscous addiction, but he is now at rest.”

The reality star donated $110 to the campaign while her boyfriend donated another $100. Mama June posting the link seems to have helped with the GoFundMe raising more than the original $10,000 goal.

On the season finale of “Mama June: From Not To Hot”, Mama June finally enters rehab with her boyfriend Geno Doak. She admitted to having a $2,500 a day meth habit. The reality star successfully completed the program and left the facility sober.
