Maureen Spataro's smile was the one to light up every room. She was the parent running into the classroom with cupcakes, the friend who you could lean on, the "Team Mom" for her daughter's softball team. What no one knew, was behind that smile was a past that she stuffed down deep. Until one day, when Maureen wakes up completely numb, feeling nothing at all.
The silly, quick-witted, easygoing woman with the gut-busting laugh was gone. And, there was a sickening, and very real possibility that neither Maureen, nor anyone she loved, would ever see her again.
Press Pause shares the story of Maureen's breakdown, and the treatment that would have her revisit the traumas from her past - traumas that she thought she had already dealt with. Finally fully unpacking the sexual and physical abuse she endured, the secrets she carried for decades turned into a catalyst for not only healing herself, but changing the whole trajectory of her family's future.
