Marian was an honor student, State Champion Swimmer, Division 1 Scholarship Athlete and model.

Through the help of dear friends and immediate family, however, Marian found the strength to begin anew by moving hours away, to a strange city, where she knew almost no one, with no job, no money, and three young mouths to feed.
