    I absolutely love his family; especially his cousin Russell and step-brother. The way they supported his Mom when she was about to lose it in the Intervention was frickin badass. The support for Camay by calling her “family” and saying they loved her just shows how much love this family has for Kenny. The trailer thing…I get it. She didn’t allow him under her roof but provided a “safe place” to stay besides the streets. Her frustration, anger, worry and sadness were understood. I was so sad to read the final screen.

    Ughhh that final black screen makes me so sad 🙁 I seriously felt the love from this family during the intervention, wishing the best for Kenny and Camay <3

      Liz,
      Camay left treatment after 4 days. Kenny left after 6 days and returned to the Tenderloin area of SF. He moved in with his Mom (she had the trailer removed from the property) and was attending an outpatient center. It said Camay is no longer involved with Kenny.

    My heart hurt at the end. I was in tears when Camay agreed to go and turned everything around, she just looked so relieved and exhausted. I guess it was just too much for them. I hope Kenny can keep on fighting and I hope Camay has people that love and care about her too. Kenny’s family was so strong, beautiful and open.
