Award winning author Lenor Madruga Chappell was a beautiful young woman - model, radio personality, wife of a rancher, mother of two, and active
citizen in her California hometown. On the morning of her thirty-second birthday, she discovered a hard lump in her groin and
subsequently underwent a hemipelvectomy: removal of her left leg and hip. Her victorious story is an inspiration not only to the millions
of amputees throughout the world, but to all who face physical or emotional trauma
as you will read in her books.
