Tonight's special guest is Cindi Taylor from Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida. "My sexual abuse started at age 7 and continued until I was 15 by my stepfather," she reports. "My mother asked me one day after school if something was happening / did happen between the two of us [but]  I didn't get away until I moved our if the house I grew up in. I was confused, scared. I knew this wasn't happening to my girlfriends." Cindi explains, "I didn't get away until I moved our if the house I grew up in. I was confused, scared. I knew this wasn't happening to my girlfriends. I have complex PTSD, ADHD. I am completely at peace with the abuse. I know that the abuse was put upon me because I kept a positive attitude, determination and sheer grit about processing through it all and not only surviving, but thriving in spite of everything." Now she's an active advocate. "I have started a foundation called 'A Positive Survivor'. It's on FB and soon to be LinkedIn & Instagram. I have begun to book talks with local AA groups, women's shelters & schools to tell my story. They all need to remain positive and take their individual journey one day at a time. Always breathe, pray and walk daily to help your mind process, digest and work through all things: negative or positive!!"

Stop Child Abuse Now

Monday to Friday's "Stop Child Abuse Now" (SCAN) feature trauma informed HOSTs and Co-hosts and respected child abuse prevention, intervention and recovery advocates. They're all volunteers members of the National Association of Adult Survivors of Child Abuse (NAASCA), a 501(c)3. Founded in 2009, NAASCA.org was originally a grassroots effort. It was launched based on our founder Bill Murray's personal life experienced. Bill wrote, "Very few adults escape years of severe childhood sexual abuse, pre-pubescent X-rated photography, sex trafficking, and a two week long kidnapping." He continued. "But I have, and for some 35 years I've been in recovery from its devastating effects." After years of operating as a grassroots effort, NAASCA became a public charity in 2015 .. a 501(c)3 .. but we receive no grants or outside support, and belong to no other organization. There are no dues or fees. Our MISSION is entirely self-sustaining through the volunteer contributions of our members. The single purpose is to address issues related to childhood abuse and trauma including sexual assault, violent or physical abuse, emotional traumas and neglect from two specific perspectives: 1) educating the public, and 2) offering hope for healing and services to adult survivors. There are now nearly 3000 BlogTalkRadio shows, podcasts in the ever-growing library. Join us five-nights-a-week (Mon to Fri), at 8pm EST (so 7pm CEN, 6pm MTN, 5pm PAC) for solution-oriented discussions about the many issues of child abuse and trauma. The shows always include panel discussions and call-in participation.
