'I'm Gonna Tell ... an offbeat tale of survival'
Date:3/26/2009

PITTSBURGH, March 26 /PRNewswire/ -- It was on a train ride with a cousin to attend the funeral of a family member that Lori Cardille began her painful journey on the road to recovering from childhood sexual abuse. During the train ride, when her cousin asked out of the blue if Lori thought his father was a pedophile, her response was to vomit violently. She then had to face her past, and part of her healing process included writing about it in her memoir "I'm Gonna Tell ... an offbeat tale of survival" (published by iUniverse).

According to the Darkness to Light organization, one in four girls and one in six boys are sexually abused before the age of eighteen. Nearly seventy percent of all reported sexual assaults, which include assaults on adults, occur to children seventeen and under, and an estimated thirty-nine million survivors of childhood sexual abuse exist in America today. Lori Cardille stresses that even though she does not consider herself a writer, she wants her memoir to help those who are a part of these statistics.

The late Mister Fred Rogers, who was a family friend, encouraged Cardille to write her book in order to help others who were abused -- as well as their families, their friends, their therapists, or anyone who has compassion for the human condition. "I'm Gonna Tell" is brutally honest about very personal and painful experiences, but one the author knew had to be told.

Cardille states, "No matter how much despair and hopelessness a victim of abuse might feel, there is hope for recovery."
