  • Brad Hearon, was burned Jan. 7, 2003, at the age of 19, while manufacturing methamphetamine, changing his life dramatically.
    He spent Jan. 7 to April 29, 2003, in the Via Christi Burn Unit, where he was in a drug-induced coma for the first 13 weeks. After the hospital stay, he experienced 6 weeks of acute physical rehab where he was able to stand on his feet for the first time in 5 months.
    Hearon spoke with Waynesville High School students and Waynesville Middle School's Interact students about the consequences of his choices – including his friends – and how they have affected him for the rest of his life. He will return to Waynesville to deliver his powerful message to more WMDS students.
