I’m not the only one with a nightmare story, but I am the only one with a story like this,” Jessica told ‘People’ in an interview. Jessica Allen’s story is one of the rarest kinds of stories, one of the real-life nightmares, of unexpected surprises of life-altering effect, of joy and of sorrow, a story of betrayal and trust, and the wonders of the human body.
