I should warn you this video is hard to watch. Viper has lived on the streets of Hollywood for over six months. Although, like many of those who came through the foster care system, she considers herself homeless for her entire life.

Viper faces serious health issues; she has a catheter and uses a service animal since she is prone to seizures. Sadly, her ailments and dog prevent her from being admitted to most homeless shelters.

This is one of those stories that left me feeling helpless. I wish I had more answers.
