Mums will do anything for their kids – even hike over 2000 miles – as Heidi Jorg proved when she dropped everything to save her daughter’s life.
Elly Jorg-Weyde from Florida started drinking and experimenting with drugs aged 13. By 18, she was smoking meth and shooting heroin. After joining Narcotic Anonymous, Elly looked like it she was making a full recovery, but then she fell off the wagon again.
After getting clean once more, Heidi (Elly’s mum) decided to quit her job and take her daughter away from the temptations of drugs by hiking the 2,200 mile long Appalachian Trail with Elly and Elly’s brother Jake.
