Death By Fentanyl Podcast Series | Rebekah Brown’s 18 year-old son Cole Part II

In Episode 222, in Part II, I continue my discussion with Rebekah Brown as she shares the death of her son Cole who died of fentanyl poisoning at 18 and her activism to help young people understand the dangers of this illicit illegal drug.

He is survived by his father, John Purcell, sister, Ella who was 16 and brother, Seth who was 12 when Cole died.

On the day they were to move from California to Oklahoma, Cole was found unresponsive. Rebekah tells us her painstaking journey from then until now.

#fentanyl #opioids #grief #fentanylpoisoning

In Episode 219, in Part II, I continue my conversation with Chris Didier of VOID: Victims of Illicit Drugs, as he shares the tragic death of his 17 year-old son Zach to one pill of fentanyl.

Chris and Zach Didier, Tokyo 2019

We speak about Chris’ family’s early years and Zach’s exceptional accomplishments for a 17 year-old. Amazing.

Here is clip of Zach, just a short time before he died, playing piano with his precious dog, Jake singing in the background.

To help others, Chris is a member of the board of VOID: Victims of Illicit Drugs – https://www.StopTheVoid.org where the outstanding documentary “Dead on Arrival” will help others better understand the tragedy of this fentanyl crisis and how it affects families whose children have died from this illicit illegal opioid drug.
