Upcoming on Women Warriors, Wed at Noon ET on May 28th, our special guest will be Stacey Marcus.  Stacey will discuss the topic of giving back even when you don’t think you have anything to give.   Stacey’s inspirational journey will inspire Women Warriors everywhere toward a better future.

Having to deal with the horrors of child sexual abuse, life for Stacey Marcus has been about survival.  “I’m going to die,” was her final thought as she survived one ultimate sexual encounter by her stepfather and one last beating by her mother. 

Through courage and determination, Stacey ran away from home, went on to work two jobs while putting herself through college and graduating with honors.  Stacey claimed her independence while living on Frosted Flakes and lettuce. She never gave up on her seemingly unforgiving life.

After many years of struggling with trying to understand, “Why Me?”, Stacey took back control of her life and started saying, “It was me, now what am I going to do?”  Along with her love of children and animals, Stacey has become an advocate for children with special needs and women of abuse. Stacey has been a guest speaker for organizations such as The Friendship Circle, Battered Women, Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous. She has volunteered at the Jewish Home For The Aging and has saved several dogs from abuse.

Stacey continues to be tested in her 23-year marriage.  She is alive and present for her three children. She has created art, love and belief. She is currently working on her memoirs entitled “Kosher Crack.”
