Rebecca Hathaway grew up in a small town in Washington. Her life has been centered around family and her children, whom she provided stability, a home, structure, and most importantly love. Today she struggles with the devastation of addiction and its impact on her family. It is her hope that education surrounding addiction is made a priority, that society understand that it is an illness, and that her story might help raise awareness. Everyday she misses her daughter more. Her devoted partner Robert Finkbonner's support has been crucial.
