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.

Tonight's special guest is John Anderson from River Ridge, Louisiana, a child abuse survivor and cofounder of SCSA (Survivors of Childhood Sex Abuse). "My abuse started at the age of nine at St. Matthew in River Ridge, Louisiana," he explains. "It continued for three weeks in class in front of other students. I was threatened and scared. My friends saw Brignac abusing me with their own eyes. So did many other students. They would climb on top of garbage cans to watch him through the windows in the hall. It took the help of one of the witnesses to tell my parents. I couldn't." John goes on, "I started breaking down. My life would never be the same. 6 different schools later I barely graduated. My mother was in her third trimester with my brother while trying to convict George Brignac. We had him arrested and with a bench trial Brignac was acquitted for the reasons of conspiring to expose his celibacy. I had two witnesses. Brignac is the Louisiana's most prolific rapist, managed to get 26 victims after me. I was the first." Today he's getting better. "I do suffer extensive damage physically and mentally. C-PTSD, fibromyalgia, permanent nerve damage, depression and anxiety. I have been going to doctors since I was 10. Today I am disabled, but help run www.scsaorg.org as Vice President and co-founder with two other New Orleans survivors. I use my experience of 45 years to help any and all victims." John is happier now, "I am a musician on Facebook where I play songs of healing daily. I have been seen in Sports Illustrated, Big Easy New Orleans magazine, NOLA.com, and the NO Advocate newspaper, as well as our local TV station here in New Orleans."
