"This is my testimony and if it [helps] just one person... it will all be worth it." -- Lucy R. Burlington
In the late 1970s, Lucy was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis. Keeping the pain at bay led her to make some unfortunate decisions. So others might benefit, she wrote her story but died before it could be published.
Thirty years later, this gripping, concise memoir is as timely as ever.
"This is my testimony and if it should help just one person, then it will all be worth it." -- Lucy R. Burlington
In the late 1970s, Lucy Burlington, a young single mother, was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis. Her struggle to keep the pain at bay while raising her young son led to her make some decisions she would not have otherwise. In order to keep others from traveling her same road, she wrote down her story, so that others might possibly benefit from her experiences, but died before it could be published.
Now her son realizes Lucy's dream by releasing her story to the world. Almost thirty years after the events occurred, prescription drug addiction is an even bigger problem than before... and this gripping, concise memoir is as timely as ever.
