The 1st Story

Over the course of her marriage, Jill sustained over 90 broken bones and 2 miscarriages. After 12 years, she took her children and ran for her life. This is her story.

Jill’s story is the first installment in our video series called The 26th Story. Over the course of 2014, we will celebrate our 25th anniversary by sharing 25 stories for 25 years, releasing a new story every other week. All of these stories are leading up to the reveal of our 26th story at the end of the year. We hope you will join us by keeping up with these videos as they are released and following us on social media.
