(WZZM) - A Battle Creek native is continuing her journey, just days after she was in the Upper Peninsula.

Jenn Gibbons was rowing around Lake Michigan to raise awareness for breast cancer. Early Sunday morning she was attacked by a man police believe had been tracking her location through her website.

Wednesday, Jenn Gibbons arrived back in northern Michigan to complete her journey-- this time by bicycle and with a group.

Since publicly sharing her story, Gibbons has made headlines at media outlets in midwest and across the country. One new fan wrote this message onJenn's Facebook page:

"Hi Jenn -

We don't know one another, but I happened upon the story of your assault and then went to your website. You have two new fans who want to tell you how much your bravery and strength mean to others...

My daughter experienced severe bullying in Jr. High this year, which led to self-harm and suicidal thoughts and one serious attempt. She has been released.

After reading your blog, my daughter turned to me and said, "This lady survived the most extreme act of bullying a woman could face -- and look how she is handling it. She is a hero." To hear such positive words from her after months of deep depression and an overwhelming sense of unworthiness has meant more than I could possibly tell you.

Thank you for sharing your story - you never know who you will touch and in what way, but you have definitely touched two Michigan women. I am truly sorry for what happened to you, but so proud of your strength, bravery and tenacity! You are a true role model for me and my daughter."
