The Light Within by Diana Bellerose
Stacy Blanchet was born on June 24, 1965, in San Diego, California. Her parents are of Cuban, French and Lebanese descent. She is the elder of two children. By the age of four she would see her parent’s divorce. By age 11, with her mother’s second divorce, Stacey quickly learned that nothing lasts forever. It was during the second divorce that Stacey was sexually abused by a relative, and expected to keep quiet and deal with those demons alone. It was those two incidents that forever shaped her life in ways she would not know until years later. Deciding to seek help at the age of 19 for what she would call her dark years, she met therapist, Gerry Limpic. He would be the first of many to change the course of her life. He believed and fought for her rights. He felt it was necessary to expose and remove Stacey from this toxic family situation.
