I grew up between Texas and Alabama. I'm a survivor of childhood sexual abuse. At the age of three, my mother had played a record with Elvis Presley singing. I don't remember the song that he sang the first time I heard him, but it was something that my alcoholic and drug addicted father never took away from me. No matter how many beatings I received, hearing Elvis always made things better. I never saw Elvis as a entertainer or a star. As a child, I saw him as my superhero. Just knowing there was an amazing and extraordinary man out there I could block anything out. Many people have done brave things. For me, the bravest thing I've ever done was to continue my life when at one point, I wanted to die. Then I'd hear Elvis singing and my thought would go away. I guess I've never really outgrown him as my superhero. He was my superhero as a child in an abusive home, and he'll always be my superhero as an adult. I'm not just a survivor of childhood sexual abuse I'm also a big supporter for Elvis Presley. And a major fan. I'll do anything I can to help. This story may not make sense to some people, but I hope there's some out there that will understand what I'm trying to say.

Elvis Presley Enterprises and Priscilla Presley have the power to stop this and they need to know how important it is to the fans to preserve Elvis' legacy.
