Tonight's special guest is Carol D Levine from Oxford, New Jersey, a NAASCA Board Member, an activist and the author of 'Panic Child: A Harrowing True Story of Sexual Abuse and Neglect.' The traumas of childhood neglect and sexual abuse cannot be left behind when victims mature into adults. She is one of NAASCA's most dedicated volunteer family members, her commitment unsurpassed. A lot has happened in Carol's life over the last few years. She took care of her husband Marty until he passed, sold their old home and has moved into a new house. She usually reaches the public both by making regular live personal appearances both in northwest New Jersey and northeast Pennsylvania. She's offered hope for healing to innumerable still-suffering adult survivors of child abuse. It's not been an easy path for Carol. Her childhood was filled with child sexual abuse, stranger abduction, and rape, a journey of pain, and neglect. But even after the toll it took on her in her adult life, well over 30 years ago Carol found the courage to keep going, to heal and to be a voice for change. Carol has appeared on numerous other radio shows, too, has been interviewed for newspapers and has spoken before community groups and at colleges. She spreads her message of recovery and speaks out against the horrible pandemic of child abuse. Carol continues to appear as a regular host on our SCAN talk shows, and trains new hosts as NAASCA expands. She's always willing to step in wherever a regularly scheduled talk show host has a conflict.
