Age: 46

Age when first abused: 7

"The reason I came forth is because I have daughters. It would hurt me to know that they would be involved with a man who was carrying a secret like I was. I know that it has nothing to do with their hurt. It's a generational curse. Unless they have the courage, like hopefully I have now, unless they have the courage to say: 'Hey, listen. I've been hurt. I've been taken advantage of.' There's no way they can be whole. Once they're able to do that, they can save a bloodline.

I'm hoping that, by doing this, I can save somebody's daughter from having a lot of pain with dealing with a man, and [for] me, saving my own daughters dealing with their pain and their angst about it."
