(VIDEO) Renal Failure…and Stll on the Street (part 3)

29 Jun

We met a girl who had been diagnosed with kidney failure 2 months ago. When we met her, she was having dialysis 3x a week…and still did prostitution.

She felt that she had no other choice but to do this…she didnt owe her madam anything. Everything she was making was for her survival.

She had the opening to the port in her chest, covered by a piece of lingerie.

What do you do when you see something like that? I kept asking her to come see us in the office…we can help, but she seemed reluctant.
