Karen Rosner, a transplant social worker from Phoenix, has defied the odds after being born with a life-threatening heart condition. Despite doctors predicting she wouldn’t live beyond her first birthday, Rosner has successfully undergone a heart transplant and six open-heart surgeries.

Her book offers insights into her extraordinary journey, providing hope and encouragement to those facing medical uncertainties. By sharing her experiences, Rosner aims to make a positive impact on the lives of other transplant patients and their families.
