I hope you haven't forgotten Amanda, the young girl whose life nearly got damaged by crack cocaine.
Last year a photographer and YouTube star, Soft White Underbelly, took to his YouTube channel to upload the video of a beautiful girl, Amanda, whom was ruined by crack.
The video went viral globally as it was shared over a million times on social media. Soft White Underbelly said the purpose of sharing that video was to educate people on the effects of drugs.
People started demanding that Soft White Underbelly should take Amanda to a rehab center for her to get proper healthcare and restore her health.
See link to video posted by Soft White Underbelly, it is video which documented the adverse effect crack cocaine had on Amanda:
I'm glad to announce that after spending 6 months in a rehabilitation center is now in recovery. Amanda is still in recovery and has made great improvement.
In the go fund me account set up by Underbelly to pay for her medical bills it was written that Amanda started using drugs like marijuana in 2017. At age of 20 she was misdiagnosed of schizophrenia and bipolar.
She became homeless as a result of her addiction to crack and lack of access to mental health treatment because of high cost.
They also gave a background story of how her father is 60% disabled as a result of his service in the United States military. But, despite his service to his country he wasn't given the necessary assistant to help his daughter.
I'm really happy that Amanda is looking more healthy and stronger. She will soon be discharged from the hospital.
Amanda hopes to become a certified medical assistant to enable her help others too.
