Rebecca Wright blew the whistle on professional guardianship abuse in Virginia. A court-appointed guardian forcibly moved Wright’s mother to a nursing home in Florida and approved the sale of her home. This action separated Edith from her husband Eddie. Wright was able to bring national attention to this issue, which resulted in the documentary, “Edith+Eddie.” See also, Cher on ‘Edith+Eddie’: “They Were Not Treated Like People.”
