Tolson 4 TEARS Talks 2 SCAN: Stop Child Abuse Now

The Project 4 TEARS: Telling Everyone About Rape & Suicide
to comfort victims, break the silence, and challenge society.

So no shed tear is wasted.

SCAN: Stop Child Abuse Now, blog talk radio show, coordinates with the National Association of Adult Survivors of Child Abuse. The primary mission at NAASCA is to help abused people get into recovery. Secondly, we actively advocate for a better understanding of the many issues that surround the problem of child abuse in America. Bill Murray, founder, says, "Very few adults have escaped severe child abuse, trafficking, child pornography and kidnapping. But I have. More importantly, I've been in recovery from its devastating effects for over 25 years." Visit Facebook cause "Stop Child Abuse Now" (SCAN)

I was a guest on SCAN, hosted by Bill Murray, Carl Hart, Jessica Stevens, and advocate/author of Panic Child Carol Levine and we talked about my memoir Beyond the Tears: A True Survivor's Story. I'm accustomed to telling my story publicly, and even gave personal testimony to state legislatures, but these interviews were particularly open and transparent. I did not answer questions in vague terms or politically correct phrases; I used the real words that represent the horrible experiences of rape and incest, and its devastating effects that may last a lifetime, like drug abuse and suicide attempts.  Listen as the host(s) and I talk about moving from pain and suffering to hope and healing.

Thanks to Bill Murray and the members of SCAN/ NAASCA for providing attention and advocacy to the millions of men and women who need a hand to hold on their journey.
