About the Book

Rosalind Noreiga's job as a registered nurse was to care for others. She never imagined that she'd wake up healthy one day and be undergoing surgery the next.

But that is exactly what happened to the marathon-running nurse after she suffered an aneurysm that threatened to take her life.

In this memoir, she recalls growing up in her native Trinidad and Tobago, growing up in a large family, and discovering a lifelong passion for running. She also explores her struggles in America raising a son as a single mother but never losing her faith when life seemed most fragile.

With striking candor, she describes the moment-to-moment trauma, treatment, and aftermath of the two aneurysms she suffered as well as her recovery and ultimate return to work.

Join the author as she looks back at immigrating to a new country, working several jobs, going to school, getting divorced, raising a son on her own, and fighting to survive in this heartfelt memoir.
