Help Me Make the Film

This film is a labor of love for me. In my thirty-year struggle to heal since my abuse, I've been troubled by the difficult road that men face. I've been turned down for therapy groups and support groups because they're for women and I could be seen as a predator or remind the women of their abusers.

Through all that I've been able to improve a little every day. For most people, it looks like, on the outside, that I'm doing well and thriving. But inside my family, they see the daily struggle against depression, anxiety and sleep disorders. I want my story (and the story of the eight men who've agreed to be in the film) to help motivate men to get the help they deserve. But I can't do it alone.

I think you saw this coming, but I'm asking you for your help. I'm running a crowdfunding campaign to help me with the travel costs of filming. If you can help with any spare dollars, that would be great. If you aren't in a position to help me financially, sharing of the campaign would be truly invaluable.
