I would like to share something with you that most, if not all don’t know about me.
I am a victim/survivor of child sexual abuse and I have been for the past 21 years of my life.
Back in November of last year, I attended the first JCW event in south Florida.
That night, my life turned upside down. Going to the event that night was the worst and best thing I’ve ever done, the emotions, pain, anger, and memories it brought up were overwhelming.
The next day I spoke to Meyer Seewald, the director of JCW.
I told him what I was going through and I expressed that I needed therapy but I couldn’t afford it.
Without hesitation he’s said “Don’t worry Avremi, how much can you afford” I told him an amount which was way below the fee per this particular therapist charged, JCW covered the rest.
My point is, whether you agree or disagree of how JCW runs their organization, they save lives! literally.
I’m passionate about this organization because I don’t want my children to have to go through the emotional trauma that I’ve been through. I’m passionate about this organization because I don’t want my children coming to me and my wife when they’re 27 years old, telling the story they’ve hidden and suppressed for 20 years, like I did a few months back to my parents.
