Helping The Survivors Of Child Abuse

David Pittman began writing a blog about being sexually abused as a teenager.  The blog caught on, and led to the formation of a non-profit group, Together We Heal

TWH works to help survivors heal, and to help educate the public about child sexual abuse. 

Those are goals shared with the Children's Advocacy Center of Jackson County. 

Both organizations are part of a child abuse symposium this week in Medford.  David Pittman and CAC Executive Director Tammi Pitzen join us in the studio.
