"But I am here to tell you that I will not rest until every last trace of your influences on this sport has been destroyed like the cancer it is".
With several events related to the awful crimes committed by former MSU physician Larry Nassar in the news, I want to describe what we are doing to address the issues arising from this matter and, more importantly, the steps we are taking to support his victims, create the safest campus environment possible, and do our utmost to prevent something such as this from ever happening again.
The 54-year-old Nassar faces a minimum sentence of 25 to 40 years in prison for molesting girls at Michigan State University and his home.
"Through this awful situation, the university has been perceived as tone deaf, unresponsive and insensitive to the victims", Breslin said."We understand the public's faith has been shaken". Trustees declined to answer reporters' questions.
". USA Gymnastics just said, 'We're handling this".
"By doing so you will send a message to him and to other abusers that they will not get away with their frightful crimes", Raisman said. Not only because of what he did to me, my teammates and so many other little girls - He needs to be behind bars so he will never prey upon another child.

The disgraced doctor has already been sentenced to 60 years in prison after pleading guilty to federal child pornography charges.
"I had a dream to go to the Olympics and the things I had to endure to get there were unnecessary and disgusting", Maroney wrote, adding that the abuse started when she was 13 or 14 and ended only when she left the sport. Raisman is one of the most recognizable members of the U.S. gymnastics team, but she never stops emphasizing that each woman's voice matters equally.
Dr. Larry Nassar won't be sentenced until next week to accommodate the many victims who want to speak. Well you know what Larry?
'We must question our views': Irish opposition leader backs abortion reform
Speaking in the Dail yesterday, Mr Martin indicated he will support unrestricted abortion up to 12 weeks into a pregnancy. Minister Harris says the figures represent real women at a crisis point in their lives.
Simone Biles, who dazzled in winning gold at the 2016 Rio Olympics, said in her Twitter post revealing abuse by Nassar at the ranch this week that it "breaks my heart" to think of returning there to train for the 2020 Games.
Wieber is the fourth member of the Fierce Five - the nickname given to the 2012 US women's gymnastics team - to say Nassar sexually abused her, joining Gabby Douglas, McKayla Maroney and Aly Raisman.
She later noted: 'The worst part is I had no idea he was sexually abusing me'.
Before he was sacked in September 2016, Nassar was a MSU faculty member for 20 years and saw patients at the MSU Sports Medicine Clinic, where numerous victims were assaulted. "I can't even comprehend how angry I feel when I think of you", Raisman, now 23, told the court in MI, where Nassar has pleaded guilty to 10 counts of criminal sexual conduct. The Attorney General's office has asked for a 125-year sentence.
"We continue to believe President Simon is the right leader for the university and she has our support".
Meanwhile, the scandal-plagued organization that harbored Nassar for years is forging ahead with plans to host its four-day national championships at Boston's TD Garden in August, which is now featured on the venue's website and USA Gymnastics' website. Another university doctor, Brooke Lemmen, resigned.
The FBI and MSU Police Department also conducted a joint investigation earlier this year into whether any university employee engaged in criminal conduct relating to Nassar's actions; there were no charges filed.
