"Last October [2009], I did a recovery weekend that helped me understand I was not alone and there were people I could turn to, to share my story and the trauma, and they would understand. That experience helped me come to terms with the shame and hurt I had been dealing with for most of my life.

"I recently had an advanced weekend of recovery with them, and it was an extraordinary three days. This show is an opportunity for me to share my story and also to let others know they don't have to be alone in a bubble of shame. There are people they can talk with and be understood."
