'Beading Hearts' string together hope for inmates struggling with addiction

''The Beading Hearts," a group of moms who lost their children to drug overdoses, meet monthly with inmates at the Suffolk County jail in Yaphank to share their stories, hoping to change lives. One inmate said: "You would never want to come out of the tunnel if you didn't see the light, and they give you the light." Newsday TV's Cecilia Dowd reports.
