Through the pain and sadness, Janet Morrison-Heberling is finding the strength to share her daughter’s story in hopes of saving lives and helping other grieving parents.

“My daughter was a beautiful, kind, loving soul that got caught up in this epidemic,” she said.

On April 5, 2022, Morrison-Heberling lost the light of her life. Her 30-year-old daughter, Brianna Sanner, died of a fentanyl overdose.

“From that day forward, which was April 5th, I felt like I’ve been living outside of my own body. The pain, there’s days you just can’t get out of bed,” Morrison-Heberling said.

Instead of grieving in silence, this mom is speaking up to spread awareness about fentanyl.
