Murder Victim Had Overcome Adversity

Becky Schiering knew adversity in her lifetime; she had battled drug addiction and had bounced back to become a person who was passionate about giving back to the community. Becky’s life was cut tragically short when she and one of her sons were murdered Sunday by her ex-fiancée. Friends and family members say Becky was no stranger to adversity; she overcame an addiction to methamphetamine in order to better provide for her three young children. Becky was not afraid to talk about the problems in her past; in 2008 she talked to KXLY about how CPS had helped her with her drug addiction when she was pregnant with her twin sons Jack and Phillip. “It was a Godsend that somebody called, it was a Godsend that somebody stepped in and said something finally,” she said during that 2008 interview/Tori Brunetti, KXLY.

Question: Do you know anyone who has beaten meth addiction?
