Pro cyclist provides example of overcoming sexual abuse

The examples of those who overcome this abuse can help for a number of reasons. First, they show that the victim is not alone. Others have gone through similar atrocities and not only survived, but were able to do amazing things with their lives.

One such story was recently shared in an article by The Huffington Post. The article shares the story of a professional cyclist who was the victim of sexual abuse when she was a teenager. The young woman explains how her road to recovery was difficult, how she has struggled with eating disorders and depression. She also explains how she is happy to share her story “in order to help others recover from similar ordeals.”

This young woman shares two things that helped her heal: time and cycling. She shares that for her recovery process, hitting the road on her bicycle allowed her to “get away from it all.” This pastime was not just helpful for her psyche, but also for her professional ambitions. The young woman has won multiple National Championships and over 35 international cycling race wins.

What can other victims of sexual abuse learn from her story? This woman’s story provides an example for others in similar situations. Although the road ahead is not always easy, she pushes victims to move forward because they “can do great things.”

One step that many find helpful involves holding their abusers accountable through a civil suit. This is different from a criminal suit, which involves the state holding the abuser accountable for violating the law.

Those who are considering moving forward with a civil suit are wise to contact an attorney.

Ben and Nate are great guys. They walked me through the whole process, from beginning til the end. The receptionist and very nice. Answer all my questions and concerns. I will refer them to anyone. Their not like other lawyers that talk around the topic. They tell you just how it is or how they believe it will be. Thank you guys so much.

Ben and Nate took their time in handling my case with compassion and care. I never had to wonder what was going on. They always made sure to include me in each and every decision that needed to be made before they were made. Their entire staff was always very polite and knowledgeable. I cannot say enough kind words about Andreozzi + Foote; they are simply the best!

Handled our case SO well even though it took a long time to settle, and STILL helps us with paperwork related to the settlement account every now and then. They were honest with us from the get-go, worked REALLY hard on our behalf, and always kept in touch with us about what was going on. So pleased.

When you and your child are victims of a horrid crime it's hard to understand why things are the way they are. Information and answers are what you want, but unfortunately the system doesn't offer that. Nathaniel has fielded and patiently listened to a broken mother wanting nothing more than for someone to help her understand why she has no answers, and through these phone calls Nathaniel has been very informative, honest and upfront. I would recommend Nathaniel and this firm to anyone who is seeking answers, help and professionalism in a firm when going through such difficult times.
