NEW YORK — A woman who had her two children taken away from her resulting in a battle with crack addiction and depression after the 9/11 attacks, has finally shaken off her demons.
Marcy Borders, 38, had her life go in a downward spiral on the tragic day of Sept. 11th, 2001.
Borders was a month into a job with Bank of America when a plane hit the north tower in which she worked in.
“I couldn’t see my hand in front of my face. The world went silent,” said Borders.
But the death of Osama Bin Laden helped put the former Bank of America worker on the right track.
“God got rid of my biggest fear,” said Borders, 38, who learned shortly after entering drug rehab that NAVY SEALs shot dead the 9/11 mastermind. “The treatment got me sober.”
