More About the Author
"My Brother Needs an Operation" was created when Anna was unable to find an appropriate resource to help her son, Joey, through his brother's second open-heart surgery when he was only three years old. The book can help siblings regardless of the reason their brother or sister is in the hospital. The book addresses the needs of the child who is left behind.
Anna Marie Jaworski also edited two anthologies of stories by men and women affected by congenital heart defects. "The Heart of a Mother" and "The Heart of a Father" helps women and men understand how to survive the complexities involved with finding out they (or their child or grandchild) have a heart defect. The books also deal with the day-to-day skills needed to raise a child with congenital heart defect but most importantly, the books provide hope and encouragement for anyone who lives with or loves someone with a congenital heart defect.

Armed with the information that my son Matthew had a congenital heart defect I went in search of answers. I couldn't find any books that dealt with this subject from a Mother's standpoint. I wanted to know how it would effect our family life. I had heard the medical statistics and now I wanted to know from other Mother's how their children grew and developed. What can Matthew achieve? Should you question the doctors or do you just blindly follow them? I had hundreds of questions that only another mother, father, grandparent or child could help me with. Anna's book contains over 61 heartfelt stories written by people like you and me, carefully woven together by Anna to form the book Heart of A Mother.
