    Evangeline Smith

    You'd never know it by looking at her, but Evangeline "Red" Smith has overcome many odds to get where she is today. Two cancer surgeries and a near fatal traffic accident have given her some perspective on the value of life. But Red was most powerfully affected by a 20-year addiction to narcotic pain pils. She broke free from that addiction in 2012 with Peninsula's Women in Treatment. It's a recovery program for women who don't have insurance.

    Clean and sober for a year, she started investing her time in things that grow last spring, starting a flourishing herb garden. Now, with winter putting those precious plants to sleep, she's working on personal growth as she trains for the half marathon. Red is married and has a son, she is a homemaker working to make a difference in her life that's permanent.
