About the Book

Lenor Madruga had stunning beauty, vibrant health, a handsome, loving husband, two wonderful young children, and a successful modeling career when, on the morning of her 32nd birthday, she discovered the small hard lump on her thigh. Within a few nightmare months, she had barely saved her life-and lost her left leg. Now this extraordinary woman tells the story of her struggle to return from the abyss of pain, drug addiction, self-torment, and depression that threatened to swallow up her entire life. It is a triumphant story of her determination to dance, drive, swim, water-ski, ride horses, make love-and so almost everything she used to do before her operation.
