You were a survivor.
Like all survivors you sought understanding. Like many survivors you recovered your hope, regained your spirit and buried your demons. Like many survivors you became an advocate for change and understanding. Like few survivors you went on to play a leadership role with the Stop Abuse Campaign. As a founding partner, you developed new models for survivor self help groups, building the teams, the capability, and piloting the groups with an energy few others have ever had.
You touched many lives, and saved quite a few.
Ron, on behalf of survivors everywhere we salute you. You wore your pride as one of Oprah’s 200 Men, you inspired a vision for the Stop Abuse Campaign, and you shared tremendous healing with all survivors of violence and abuse.
Cancer may have claimed you, but your vision and tenacity will always remain. You will always be a survivor.
You leave the world a better place than you found it.
You are an inspiration to us all.
