From the Author
This book is a project that is near and dear to my heart, and one I've been preparing to write since I was a teenager. It allowed me to share my story with other children and adolescents growing up with heart disease or other chronic illnesses, as well as their parents.
I also wanted to write this book as a testimonial that I endured everything that was thrown at me in my life, and endured it all. I'm a survivor, and like countless other survivors, I am grateful to everyone who helped me survive. This includes my family, friends, doctors, teachers...the list goes on and on. This book is for them as well, to say "Thank you, for everything you did."
