Manoah’s Mother Sacrifice

Susana Lluch was interested in sports because of her husband, Erik Manoah Sr. They met when she was 17 and eventually got married.

However, they parted ways in 2014 after spending almost 20 years together.

The topic of divorce or her ex-husband is sensitive for her, as she thinks that could bring negative emotions to her children.

“Divorce affects everyone, but they witnessed a lot of things growing up between their father and me,” says Lluch with a voice breaking as she fights through tears.

Erik and Alek were 15 and 12, respectively, during their time of separation. Lluch did her best to give her sons the same life as before.

After some time, they moved south from Kendall, Fla., to the city of Homestead, where Susana’s family was close.

Just to feed the boys, Lluch had to work on multiple jobs, like a legal assistant, network marketing, transcription, translation, and so on.

Despite her endless efforts, her divorce from Eric Sr. left a deep mark on Eric Jr. and Alek.
