Jaclyn's Journey: Dancing through Life in Spite of Chronic Illness is an inspirational story about how a child lived with heart disease without letting it take over her life.
It is about a ten-year old girl's incredible tenacity, spunk and spirit, and her ability to LIVE a lifetime of childhood experiences, in spite of hospitalizations, procedures, surgeries, long recoveries, medications, and numerous doctors' appointments.
Written by her mother, this memoir describes Jaclyn's personality, her ability to find humor in frightening medical ordeals, and her perseverance in the face of serious illness. It is about being "normal" and doing what other children and families do, in spite of health issues. It is also a story about adapting to circumstances as they arise, and how a family can cope with chronic illness, without having it define their lives.
Jaclyn taught many people how to live fully, how to dance through life, without letting obstacles get in the way.
