In a now viral video, we see Lizzy telling viewers her stories of woe while being followed around the streets as she begs for money and later explains that she uses the money to purchase drugs and fuel her addiction. She further states that after begging during the day, she still engages in prostitution at night in order to be able to afford her expensive habits as her drugs of choice are heroine and crack cocaine which she was introduced to by an ex-boyfriend. She concludes the video by emotionally indicating that she is tired of that life and wants out.

Her cry for help has been answered as she has now been taken off the street by Tony Rapu’s foundation and admitted into rehabilitation center for adequate medical and mental health care.
