Editorial Reviews

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."

Format: Paperback
This story was an excellent view of the authors life and her struggles with heart problems. She had these struggles
since birth and overcame all that was put into her way. She was a brave woman even as a child she was a fighter.
She also had the overwhelming support and love of her family and friends and husband, James. Not many of us get a
chance to deal with hardships with those around us who support us. Many times there are stories of just the opposite, so it
was refreshing to hear about a TRUE story where the victim does have LOVE, SUPPORT and understanding. Excellent, interesting
and very informative.

This book does a seemingly good job at illustrating what it's like to live with heart disease. The author recounts her life and her struggles with a life inhibiting heart condition that she refuses to let rob her of her independence. Though she's made many sacrifices in the things that she can do, it would seem that she has always focused all of her energy on reaching the milestones that she sets for herself. It's an inspiring read that would truly appeal to anyone who shares similar challenges in life.
