PHILADELPHIA - Social media influencer Cass and the City is known for her videos showcasing the best places to visit in Philadelphia and throughout the Delaware Valley, but now, she and her husband are highlighting a different cause.
Cass and her husband Kellen joined Good Day Philadelphia to get candid about the importance of addiction awareness. The road to success for the popular couple was not always an easy one.
They recently opened up about Kellen's former battles with addiction. On social media, he revealed that he was given painkillers by a friend's mom to sell for money when he was just 14 years old, eventually leading him down a path of addiction from painkillers to heroin.
During some of the worst times of his struggle, he says he was facing eviction and having thoughts of suicide. The couple decided to speak out because addiction is more common than most people think.
