    When I escaped, I went to everyone I knew who I could trust and borrowed between $50 to $200. It was hard to do, and I couldn’t tell them why I needed it. It gave me enough funding to be able to get in a very old beat-up truck and drive from Oregon as far away as I could get. I made it to Phoenix, Arizona before I found a women’s shelter. It worked. I was 47 at the time, and still had a child with me. The older ones were already out on their own.
