Brain-related illness costs 1.3 trillion dollars

“After receiving a copy of
Jessica’s book I started to read it immediately and was unable to put it
down. I laughed, I cried, I wanted to
jump up and down and scream..”FINALLY…!!! SOMEONE UNDERSTANDS ME!!!. It was as though Jessica had literally
crawled into my body and life and was describing in exact detail, everything I
was feeling and had been trying to express for the last three years of my
life! It has been a very trying and
difficult time for me in many areas of my life.
Jessica has inspired and given me hope.”Kathryn S Vause. Utah
