Lisa Major Elders writes from her heart about her experiences after surviving three cardiac arrests due to iniopathic dialated cardiomyopathy.She complements them with the poems she has written on her lifes journey, with themes of addiction, loss, love, life, forgiveness, healing, and peace.Her story begins with her third cardiac arrest in 2007 and then flashes back to other bench-mark experiences in her life. It is her hope that others will be inspired by her words to live their lives to the fullest, regardless of the obstacles they may face.Although much of her experience revolves around a life-threatening diagnosis of idiopathic cardiomyopathy and malignant ventricular tachycardia/ventricular fibrillation at aged twenty-eight and the struggles faced since then, she is not defined by it. Thanks to the lifesaving technology of internal cardioverter defibrillators or ICDs. Three cardiac arrests and had several near-death experiences compelled her to write this book.
