Joy Fishman, a Miami woman whose husband invented Narcan, the ‘save shot’ for people who are overdosing on opioids, is raising money for a needle exchange program in Miami-Dade County. She lost her son, Jonathan Stampler, to a heroin overdose 12 years ago. Narcan might have saved him, but it wasn't administered. Fishman demonstrates how to use Narcan with a nasal applicator. She carries a dose in her purse and wants to make it widely available as part of the needle exchange program.
