This is a remarkable story of survival against all odds, but it
is also the story of Alison's courage and determination to raise
awareness of the effects of rape. Her account is living proof that
it is possible to be a survivor and not a victim of sexual

identity. In doing so, she -became an inspiration to many, and she
now tours the world giving inspirational talks about her

battle for survival -- the fight against fear, rage and depression
that is common to many victims of violence.
"I Have Life" is an inspirational, important andmoving account
of one woman's triumph over violence.
