If you're a parent, have you ever thought about how far would you go to try to protect your kids?

Rebecca Bredow doesn't just talk the talk, she walks the walk. And she walked it, all the way to jail

“Some people have called me a hero, I don't see that. I just stood up for what I believe in, which I believe everybody should, right?” say Bredow.

A hot button issue thrust this metro Detroit mom into the national spotlight and into taking a mug shot.

Her crime? Not obeying a court order to vaccinate her child.

Now, she’s breaking her silence about her time behind bars, the court system, and the support she's received from near and far and most importantly, her son.
