Three years ago, Karen Anderson was a hopeless meth head — but now with the support of her Oscar-winning guardian angel, she’s turned her life around.
“Karen had hit rock bottom, but Sandra came through for her,” said a source.
“Sandra laid out tens of thousands of dollars to the family and held them all together until Karen was able to conquer her demons!
“It’s nothing short of a miracle.”
According to court records, Karen was busted for felony possession of methamphetamine on Oct. 24, 2015, in Oregon’s Washington County. She was jailed and released two days later.
But drugs kept their grip on Karen, and she was arrested again within weeks.
With Karen behind bars, Sandra invited Karen’s mom — who is her half-sister — and stepdad to spend Christmas with her, her children and boyfriend, Bryan Randall, at her vacation home in Jackson Hole, Wyo.
Karen — who’d bounced in and out of rehab, including the CODA Gresham Recovery Center in Portland — faced more legal trouble in late 2016 when she failed to return to jail after being released on a pass.
In April 2017, she pleaded guilty to unauthorized departure and was sentenced to 30 days in the slammer.
Since serving her time, the 35-year-old mother of three has found God.
“I am living proof that recovery works,” Karen wrote on her Facebook page.
The insider told Radar exclusively: “Throughout the ordeal, Sandra has been a constant source of emotional support to
the entire family!”
