During the holidays, Lisa Brashear is working to raise awareness
It’s been a difficult holiday season for one Tulsa area mother as she copes with the loss of her 25 year old son, Johnathon Noble. An avid fisherman, Noble died of a drug overdose in February.
To help educate others, and also honor her son, Lisa Brashear put up a Christmas tree with her son’s story at 12 & 12, a local substance abuse treatment center. Brashear said she hopes it will help others choose to make better choices with their lives.
“It’s very hard. I’m raising his son. He’s five. That’s what gets me up in the morning.”
“You don’t think it will happen to you. You think your family is too close, that you can handle it. But, you can’t.”
So far in 2017, police have seized twice as much heroin as in 2016, and they report that usage is sky-rocketing.
