What happened to Alexis?

Age: 30

By the age of 10, Alexis had learned to barter with sex with her stepfather. In her 20s, she found herself hooked on drugs and selling her body. She was arrested more than 80 times. At age 30, she was hospitalized after someone shot her on the job.

Alexis recovered from her injury, but is now too frail to take in customers. Her pimp has no need for her and her addiction to pain killers after hospitalization is worse than ever. She roams the streets jobless and homeless.
