About the Book
She wasnít supposed to live. Her mother heard those words but they shaped the daughterís life. The extent of her heart problem was undiagnosed until she was an adult and after her lifelong dream of attending the United States Naval Academy was shattered. She was diagnosed with a rare congenital heart disease, Ebsteinís Anomaly. Congenital heart disease is the number one birth defect in the United States. Living with one of the over 30 kinds of congenital heart diseases is tough. Feeling alone with congenital heart disease is even tougher.

This is one womanís story about thriving, not merely surviving, with congenital heart disease. With grace, humor, and honesty, she tells what is was like growing up with congenital heart disease, the challenges she faced, and the obstacles she has overcome. The author chronicles her open heart surgery and recovery to help others undergoing similar challenges. Her story truly illustrates how even with a chronic illness, one can live a full, meaningful, and healthy life.

She encourages readers to view their personal challenges in a positive light, discover ways they can be of service to others, and live life fully. Come along for the journey, and be inspired to live your best life, no matter what difficulties you may be facing.
