"While visiting an organization that deals with abusive teen relationships, Grahn ran into a "General Hospital" fan.
Grahn recalls, "She goes, 'This could happen to somebody like you, and it does, in fact happen a lot more than any of us would think.' This does indeed happen, and parents don't see it.
On the long-running ABC daytime drama "General Hospital," Nancy Lee Grahn plays attorney Alexis Davis, mother of teenager Kristina (Lexi Ainsworth), whose father is the mobster Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard), who didn't know about his daughter for a long time.
In real life, Ainsworth is a mostly home-schooled teen taking online college courses, and Grahn is the single mother of a tween daughter, Katherine.
