Yvonne Rodgers

Episode #284

Yvonne Rodgers has one most difficult stories I have listened to but her will and perseverance to prevail are awe-inspiring!  She is 57 years old and a survivor of domestic violence.  She is a mother of 3 children and has 3 wonderful grandchildren.  Yvonne has not always had things easy in her life but has always been a hard worker and supported herself.  One of her children dealt with meth and heroin addiction but is now 8 years clean and sober.  

Yvonne is on a mission to share her story of having been both mentally and physically abused by her ex-husband for several years. The last and final incident, in which he snapped my arm, which required nine screws and a plate,­ leaving me permanently disabled in my dominant arm.  It has taken a lot of time for me to finally realize that there is another course of action for me to take. I have been diagnosed with PTSD.  I have realized that healing for me is to tell my story and help other women, to get laws changed that protect victims of domestic violence whether they are women or men, and to hold prosecutors and the justice system accountable to the law.

Yvonne’s story will touch your souls and she is living proof of the power of the human spirit.  Tune in and be blown away by her determination to heal, change laws, and help other victims of domestic violence.  She is a domestic violence advocate warrior.
