Marilyn Van Derbur is the former Miss America and author of Miss America By Day which chronicles her journey to becoming a survivor of sexual abuse by her millionaire father. Marilyn speaks nationwide on the topic of sexual abuse prevention and recovery. As a childhood incest survivor, she has devoted much of her adult life to raising national awareness and understanding of sexual abuse and its long-term effects. The three child advocacy centers of Dayton, CARE House, Warren County and Michael’s House have teamed up to bring Marilyn to Dayton in order to raise awareness about child and sexual abuse.
