Janie's Fund was started by musician Steven Tyler. He wanted to do something that would directly impact the young women suffering from the trauma of abuse and neglect. One in five young women will experience some form of abuse before the age of 18. Mr. Tyler and myself find these numbers to be simply unacceptable. Most of these young women are too afraid or ashamed to seek help. Janie's Fund is trying to change that. As a victim of physical and verbal abuse myself, I had no idea who to talk to or what to do. I self medicated with alcohol for 20 years which only made things worse. If I can help spread the word that there are available resources and that you have CHOICES I will do all that I can so no one has to suffer alone anymore.
