Project Stand - Faces of Rape & Sexual Abuse Survivors

Lorrie Ann Valencia

Lorrie Ann Valencia, 33, Ladonia, TX

Repeatedly molested by her uncle and grandfather throughout her childhood. Valencia became suicidal and cut herself in an attempt to alleviate her pain. She had a tattoo of a crying rose put on her arm as a reminder to never cut herself again. Valencia started an online support group named Survivors Foundation to reach out to other survivors of sexual abuse.
