'Your Child Is Not Supposed to Die Before You'
Our audience for the premiere show included many Amy Winehouse fans who felt personally connected to her struggles with addiction.
Maria is one of those fans. She has struggled with drugs and was sober for 13 months before relapsing. This August, she got clean again. Amy’s death was a wake-up call.
In this clip, Maria's mother, Frankie, talks about what it’s like to see your child struggle with addiction, and what it feels like as a mother doing everything she can to keep her child safe. Frankie’s message to moms in a similar struggle: “Keep fighting. Your child is not supposed to die before you.”
Please share your words of encouragement for Maria in the comments below.
