In the years since our UVA tennis connection brought us together, Cindy has been a tremendous mentor, friend, and uniquely positive force in my life. Her resilience, kindness, openness, and deep faith in the Lord inspire me and shine brightly through the message she shares in this book. With her faith at the forefront, and through a touching, in-depth account of her own experience, Cindy models how we can triumph over loss and hardship with which each of us will inevitably contend. I am awed by Cindy’s resilience and delighted to know that many more people will have the opportunity to be inspired by her story.
