After years of trauma, Samantha is overcome with depression, despair and suicidal ideation. Searching for acceptance, she runs away from home with a group of teens involved in criminal activities.
Unable to find help from traditional sources and desperate to bring Samantha home, Monika takes matters into her own hands.

No Matter What--An extremely authentic and relatable account of a mother's journey of never giving up on her child. The fight between listening to one's intuition vs all the other "opinions," "voices," or judgments is far too familiar for families these days. Monika's real, raw, and very honest story reminds us regardless of the struggle, we are the experts in our lives.
Thank you, Monika, Samantha, and family, for the vulnerability and having the courage to share your experience with others.

Raising our children is often arduous and filled with hidden challenges. When your child has special needs, the challenges are greater and sometimes seem insurmountable. In writing, NoMatter What: How Far Would You Go to Save Your Child?, MonikaPolefka-Proulx has shown us how unrelenting parental love can save a child. With honesty and vulnerability, Monika shares the raw truth of the harrowing journey her family endured as they refused to let their daughter get lost in the black hole of the drug culture. The Proulx's faced every parent's worst nightmare, and despite getting only minimal help from the cold, judgmental school system and the powerless legal system, they never gave up. No MatterWhat: How Far Would You Go to Save Your Child? is a one-of-a-kind memoir from a gifted storyteller.
