Jenny Vang never imagined she would one day be telling her story on local television. Jenny has been going to Aurora Health Care’s The Healing Center since 2008. It has given her important resources and tools to begin to heal from sexual, physical and verbal abuse she endured since she was a child. And for Jenny, part of her healing process means sharing her story to help others just like her. Read more of Jenny’s store HERE.
On Tuesday, Jenny joined Maryann Clesceri, the Executive Director of The Healing Center, on The Morning Blend, on Today’s TMJ4, to promote the Hope Shining Blue Art Auction. Hosts Molly Faye and Tiffany Ogle will emcee the Hope Shining Blue event for the second year, on April 29.
