After Beating Cancer, She’s Using Her Make-a-Wish to Help Victims of Sexual Abuse

The pain of these experiences drove her to depression and four suicide attempts within two years, but now, with a smile on her face, she says everything is OK. She attributes this massive change in her life to opening up about her experiences, and now she’s using her Make-a-Wish to convince others to do the same.
