The statistics tell the heartbreaking tale.

16 year old Cheryl Pierson Cuccio was one of these victims - The incest and abuse ended with her father's murder. She endured it for several years, but hired a classmate to kill her father when he said her 8 year old sister was next. That is why she and her husband Rob wrote this book. Awareness is so important, but remember, never ask the child in front of the suspected abuser because it could put them in further danger. It took 30 years for Cheryl and her husband Rob to reveal the true horrible details of her life in order to help others.

  1. Dear Cheryl,
    I just watched your story on
    I, Witness and I am so very sorry for what happened to you.
    You protected your baby sister yet you suffered in silence for several years and endured a world of unimaginable pain and abuse. You are a hero Cheryl. If I were in your house when you were growing up I would have never left your side. I would of protected you from your father. Unfortunately life can be so very difficult to understand.

    There was a response from someone on this post who said she knew you in high school etc and what you said wasn't true. Cheryl you have been an inspiration through and through without having to hear people's venomous, destructive, ignorant comments. Cheryl??? celebrate....YOU. Celebrate how precious you are. You have endured enough enough enough.
    Many many good tidings and blessings are wished for you always Cheryl.

    The Lord delights in you and your beautiful heart.

    Sincerely yours,

    Jenny Lynn

    1. Thank you Jenny for your kind words and your support. There are people in this world that do not know what happens behind closed doors of other people's homes and fortunately for them have never experienced any kind of abuse so they feel they can comment on a topic they know nothing about even if they think they know you. I had family members as close as my brother that did not know of the abuse. I would have taken that shameful dirty secret to my grave if it wasn't for Rob.It is something only another incest or any other abused victim could understand. Thank you again for your support. Because of special people like you it makes it a little easier for me to be able to talk about this horrible shameful topic so I could help others who have not been able to speak up for themselves yet.we need to get this topic out so it's not so shameful and it's not a dirty secret any longer! Thank you😊
