On the day 22-year-old Elaina was supposed to start a new job, her mother had to make the difficult decision to take her off life support. Elaina spent the last five years battling addiction, and lost her final battle on Monday. (8/14)

Cheryl Towery of Howell shared the last moments of her daughter's life with WJBK, in the hope that other parents never have to endure the same living Hell she has.

"I wasn't prepared for what I saw in the emergency room," Cheryl said. "Because that's the worst I've ever seen her."

Cheryl says she believes the heroin her daughter used on Monday was laced with fentanyl.

She shared a photo of herself and her daughter just before she died Monday, in the hope that it will be a wake-up call about the dangers of opioid addiction.

"I'm going to fight for the rest of my life to make sure the people down here on the street selling this to people, need to be locked up," Cheryl said.
