Janesse says she and her mother have one thing in common -- they were both betrayed by Janesse's father. He left them for Heroin when she was in elementary school.

Janesse takes her microphone to her father's house to try to convince him he should leave Heroin alone. But she can't convice him to stop. A clinical expert tells her there's nothing she can do, but she finds that hard to believe.


Janesse was mentored by Beth Fertig.

Well I do understand how you feel because I know what it's like to have someone on drugs that you care about. It seem as if they don't care about what you say or do they still are going to be on drugs.

My neighborhood is filled with nothing but drug dealers and their prey. I used to want every last dealer off the street i hated the fact that they were destroying my community. But its the people themselves help make the drug dealers into who they are.
