This is a story of tragedy, trauma and pain of the worst kind.  It’s also the story of unbelievable resilience, strength and a woman who never, ever gave up on her family...  

This is a story of a mother who raised her disabled child; suffered an injury at work then experienced the death of her beloved mother, and then an incredible and unimaginable breakdown of her husband occurred that resulted in an horrific tragedy that would see him rendered permanently disabled and unable to walk again for over 2 years.  

Kelly found herself now having to support, provide and care for her family of six during these years of ongoing challenges and seemingly endless recovery. 

At only 42, she was the only one capable of carrying the burden for all. Kelly is a normal everyday loving wife, mother and member of the global community yet she has found inspiration in the experience of her life journey and shares it beautifully in this moving and aspiring book which gives a firsthand look into courage, strength and pure determination of will in the rawest of human forms. 

It only takes one person to save another, if they are willing to carry this burden…

Kelly is such a person, and this is the burden she carried.
