I just found this story by clicking on the the comments link on janaki's blog. I'm including the link to the comment.
I am reposting this here to give it wider distribution and also to prompt more people to come forward. Just the few stories we've come across have done so much good! Telling your story matters-- not just to you but to others around the world.
I'm also trying to get info about culteducation.com to the woman who left this comment; she's looking for more info, and she can certainly find that here.

hello, maybe you can help us?
Our aunt has become very too much involved with Mrs. Katie in California. she has borrwed many thousands of dollars on her visa card, to go to the School, and all she talks about now is doing those papers all day long, and talking about this Katie person. It never stops.
now she has said she is going to sell her house, so she can also take that certification that you took, and supposedly work for this Katie person!!!!
We showed her where it says, that it is no way to make a new job, as the certification can be taken away anytime, for no reason.
We are trying to help her instead get back her training as a nurse, so she can work again. she liked being a nurse.
She was very moved by your stories here, and cried allot. and she asked if she could also hear more of what happened. Maybe there could be another section of your book, where its more about those personal stories, that you say have left out so far.
thank goodness, she has decided to wait a bit before she sells her house, and spends all her money, and has nothing!!!! She was very scared after reading what happened to you, and how it can all be taken away.
its not like being a nurse, where you can just get anotehr job at another hospital!!!
so please, could you tell us more of the personal stories with this Katie, so our aunt can read them too? She read your stories three times already, its a very good book. thank you.
