A Story of Love, Faith, and Survival (Deluxe 2nd Edition)
By Joan Aubele
A twenty-nine year old mother of three has been given a death sentence by her doctor. Diagnosed with stage-four Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia, she’s told to make her funeral arrangements and say goodbye to her family. She has always relied on her religious beliefs, but becomes the unsuspecting recipient of what can only be described as miracles. Twenty-five years in the making, Joan Aubele humbly shares her story of triumph as an inspiration to all.
This lovely, Deluxe 2nd Edition of her best-selling memoir, “The Dance – A Story of Love, Faith, and Survival,” includes a new Forward, a heartfelt message from Joan’s oncologist, and a special preview of her next book, “Hearts Ablaze.”
How does this book “tie” to the previous book listing?
Faith is one strong connection.
About the Author
Born and raised in Chicago, I now reside in rural Lake Holiday, Illinois, with my husband Carl. We are high school sweethearts, and even though it’s been over thirty-eight years since we said, “I do”, we’ve never gotten out of the honeymoon stage. We’ve raised three daughters, and have four little grandchildren. Several years ago, my oldest daughter treated me to a weekend inspirational, Christian women’s conference. I was truly inspired and dreamt of someday being one of those speakers, to help make a difference in people’s lives. Although spending time with my family remains my number one priority, I am now fulfilling my dream of becoming one of those speakers.
If not writing, I can be found in my craft room. You see, I also sell scarves of my own design to inspire women, and donate a portion of the proceeds to the American Cancer Society. I’m truly addicted to participating in book signing events, craft shows, and the presentations. I LOVE that personal connection – we begin as strangers, and part as friends!
