They’re here!! The UPS guy walked through the gate today with two boxes of Chasing Medical Miracles for me to send copies to friends and the many people who assisted in helping me write the book. The book looks great, if I do say so myself… I also have promotional copies to send to media and others so I can assist my publisher in getting the word out about the book. These copies come 9 days before the book is released to the public. If you have not yet ordered a copy for yourself, check out, barnes & or go to your local bookstore and get your hands on one. If you have questions about where to locate a copy please shoot me an e-mail at
