Join us as we sit down with the courageous Libby Davis, who shares the most personal of narratives: the loss of her beloved son, Cooper, to a fentanyl overdose. As a nurse and now a determined advocate, Libby's voice carries the weight of both professional insight and a mother's profound grief. Her mission through the Cooper Davis Memorial Foundation and Keepin' Clean with Coop extends beyond mourning; she is working to raise awareness about the lethal risks of illicit fentanyl and counterfeit pills, which have become a silent epidemic stealing the lives of the unsuspecting.

The conversation is raw and deeply emotional as Libby bravely shares Cooper's series of events that led to his tragic overdose. Through her story, we're reminded that even those well-versed in healthcare are not immune to this crisis, and the necessity for honest conversations with our youth about the dangers of drug experimentation becomes ever more clear.

In the wake of Cooper's passing, Libby's advocacy work has taken on new urgency, particularly in the context of Kansas's recent legalization of fentanyl testing strips — a contentious yet potentially life-saving tool. As we examine the multifaceted fentanyl crisis, touching on border control and public health strategies like Narcan distribution, it becomes apparent that the fight against this epidemic is as complex as it is critical. This podcast not only honors Cooper's memory but also serves as an essential platform for educating families and communities on the steps we can take together to prevent further loss.
