The award is given by Indies Unlimited, an organization that celebrates independent authors “whose body of work is not obligated to a single large publishing company.” Since it’s launch, DYING TO LIVE has been an inspiration to others who recognize their own experiences within the pages, not only with their personal childhood maltreatment and chronic disease, but how the medical community worked with (or against) them. ……it’s a story of what did happen (and obviously can again) within our medical community … what goes wrong and what goes right when you’re faced with catastrophic illnesses.
