FIERCE JOY a memoir

submitted by Robin Halpern, LCSW, DCSW

I would like to recommend a memoir to all those who are dealing with a serious and debilitating health or life challenge or who knows someone who is facing this type of situation.

Written by author Ellen Schecter, a courageous woman and gifted writer, this book describes her personal journey battling an illness that challenged her in every way.

Most impressive and inspirational, is how she builds and maintains her spirit, sense of humor and interpersonal ties while her body belies her emotional strength and courage.
