About the Book

We all travel many roads on our journeys through life, some are smooth and some are rocky. At times, we wonder where the roads are leading. We feel lost and have doubts we will ever reach our destiny. Yet, no matter how many obstacles are placed in our paths, we somehow find the courage to keep going.

In my autobiography, I have taken a tragic event and tried to use it to spread a message of hope. My story is unique because I am the only person on record to ever survive my type of broken neck. I have been as open and honest as possible, sharing my thoughts and my coping strategies. My story will make you laugh and cry, but most of all, it will show you that devastating events can be overcome. It is my hope that you will read my book, and that you will come away with a feeling of peace and a sense of wonder.
