Dear Reader, qResilience Mattersq is a story - my story - that has been in my heart and on my mind for more than sixty years. I originally decided to write it for my children and grandchildren; however, many have told me it would be inspirational reading for others who have led a less than privileged life. In these pages you will join me on a journey through the foster care system, an abusive first marriage, and the ordeal of breast cancer, which included multiple reconstructive surgeries.
