Also, Pfizer’s Freda Lewis-Hall, M.D. discusses end-stage renal disease (ESRD) with Monica, who is awaiting her third kidney transplant.
Fourteen-year-old Ashley Summers vanished in 2007 — just blocks away from Ariel Castro’s Cleveland “House of Horrors” — and besides a brief phone call to her mother in 2008, she hasn’t been heard from since. Ashley’s mother, Jennifer, and step-grandmother, Linda, join Dr. Phil in search of answers. Could a newly-released FBI photo prove that Ashley — who would be 22 — is alive and well?
In November 2011, young mother of three Michelle Parker disappeared without a trace after dropping off her 3-year-old twins at the home of their father — the same day the bitter exes appeared together in an episode of The People’s Court. Michelle’s father, Brad, says he believes Michelle’s ex had something to do with her disappearance — which Michelle’s ex absolutely denies, despite having been named early in the investigation as the primary suspect.
Monica is suffering from end-stage renal disease (ESRD) and is currently undergoing dialysis while awaiting her third kidney transplant. She says although she may look healthy on the outside, she struggles with physical and emotional challenges.
