Holding My Hand Through Hell; By: Susan Murphy Milano
My dear friend and colleague, Susan Murphy Milano, had a virtual book launch last week. For the first time, Susan has written about herself and her early years into adulthood - years in which she witnessed her police officer father continually abuse her mother. Tragically, Susan's story leads to the death of both parents.
Today, due to her ongoing struggle with Stage 4 cancer, Susan can not travel and meet many of the thousands of victims she has helped as a tireless advocate for how to leave a relationship that includes intimate partner abuse. Her first book, Time's Up, was the impetus for so many to leave such dangerous relationships. Susan has saved many lives.
Another breakthrough for victims is Susan's creation of the Evidentiary Abuse Affidavit, born from the lunacy of the Drew Peterson case and his still missing fourth wife, Stacey Peterson. You can find it at the following link:
Document The Abuse
But most of all, I commend the woman who has thrown herself at life, knocking down walls and smashing through windows to help any and all victims at any cost. Her battle now is one that I know she faces with great courage and wisdom and grace (sprinkled with a little anger here and there, I'm sure). Never one to think of herself first, Susan has no health insurance. Fundraising continues daily for this brave and tireless crusader. Here are two links to fundraising sites. I hope you will take the time to learn a little about Susan and her miraculous work. She is a treasure and we can't afford to lose her.
Holding Her Hand Towards Heaven
NOTE: I just read the latest Conquering Cancer blog post (above) and am devastated to learn the latest news. Please visit the sites and help any way you can. Thank you. And to my beloved Susan, may God hold you in his lap and keep you with Him always.
