About the Book

No one ever wants to hear that they have a disease, especially one as fatal as severe pulmonary hypertension. This book takes readers through Shirley Jewett's experience, providing insight into the ways patients can take responsibility for their health and medical treatments. It is far more than a feel good book about one woman's journey to the other side of a death sentence. It is an instructional manual of survival.
