"I know how it feels when every card dealt is against you. When I experienced tragedy after tragedy, all I could think was 'what do I do now?' The first step is to break out of that hole of despair. Once I learned to move past these difficulties and put all of my energy into my passions, I knew drastic changes could be made," said author Cathy Code.
