NBC Affiliate News Channel 4, KTIV interviewed author and advocate Gregg Tyler Milligan for a two-part series related to Milligan's work and upcoming event at the Spring 2011 Protecting Families Conference in Sioux City, Iowa.
As the KTIV reporter shared as an introduction:
"It's a tough topic to tackle, but knowing how treat child abuse can save a life. That was the message Friday, from survivor Gregg Milligan. He spoke to a group of doctors, nurses, attorneys and police officers. Hoping to give them a first-hand look at the important role they play."
Within the series, Milligan revealed the trauma he underwent as a child abused by strangers and adults.
"I felt incredibly helpless, so I did not fight them. I was too afraid so I would just cry. I didn't know if they were there for me, or they were there for my mother. If they went in the back room for my mother, I was incredibly relieved."
