Ann became a single-parent at the age of 22, but that wasn't her first encounter with death. RonnAnn's journey began when she was 30 days old; her young father died of a deadly cancer that she would inherit from him. Journey along with them and learn from their strength and determination to overcome obstacles that you may be facing today. This duo has faced natural disasters, overwhelming illnesses, domestic abuse, loss of jobs and homes, divorce, and many of today's burning issues. Young adults will identify with RonnAnn's trials of adjusting to her mother's marriages, divorces, and widowhood. Moving from her home every few years and readjusting to new schools, RonnAnn survived, gained maturity beyond her years, and found success as a doctor.

Her strong belief system helps her overcome extreme losses in life. Writing this memoir has helped both women realize the power that is found from within.
