I met a man in my early 20s that I fell head over heels in love with. He was verbally abusive our whole relationship and made me feel like I couldn't live without him. He even isolated me from my friends. Stupid me said yes when he proposed. Long story short he ended up bashing me the night we came home from our engagement party. My neck and jar issues that I have today are because if that night. I fled and have never looked back. I am very passionate about raising money to help other women and men get out and stay out of domestic violence situations.
I am raising money to support a cause that I care about deeply. 1 in 3 women and 1 in 7 men will experience physical violence at the hands of an intimate partner in their lifetime. I want to increase awareness and financial resources for service providers who support victims/survivors.
