A year ago, I wrote a book about my dog, Georgia Grace. Georgia is a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel who lives with multiple, serious chronic illnesses including the top 3: Syringomyelia, Chronic Valvular Heart Disease, and Diabetes. I was told her life expectancy was three years. Today, she is 10 years, 6 months and still going strong. Georgia’s desire to live and my knowledge of chronic illness makes us a dynamic duo for sure.
Her medical costs are basically a second mortgage, so I am currently working full time with 5 part-time jobs to afford to keep her in my life. Her health is not good for my health, but she is a treasure that I would not trade for the world.
With the upcoming holiday season, I am encouraging anyone who lives with chronic illness to check out our story of unconditional love and overcoming odds. It’s the perfect gift for kids or anyone who loves animals. A portion of the proceeds goes to a fund that helps rescue Cavalier King Charles Spaniels get the medical treatments that they need. It is a cause that is very near and dear to my heart.

I’m so proud of this book. I never thought I would be able to call myself an author. Georgia has brought so much into my life that is both tragic and beautiful and I’d like to share our story with the world.

Thank you for reading my shameless plug. As Georgia maxes out of her insurance coverage, I’m hoping to increase book sales to help us keep on keeping on.
