Tammy Cantrell Greene will release her new book, “Samantha’s Story” September 26, 2015 at 7:00 p.m. at the Stephens County Historic Courthouse in Toccoa, GA.
Toccoa, GA, August 30, 2015 –(PR.com)– Local Author, Tammy Cantrell Greene and her daughter Samantha, subject of the book, will be on hand at the launch celebration.
“Samantha’s Story” is the true account of Sam’s battle with ulcerative colitis which she contracted at age seven. Though the book details many of her struggles with the disease, Samantha and Tammy view it as a book of hope. With knowledge, understanding and patience, young people dealing with chronic illness can live full, productive lives and Samantha is proof of that. Now 14, she participates in school and church activities with vitality and energy.
Tammy’s inspiration in writing of the book came to her through a scripture:
Jeremiah 10:19 – New International Version of the Bible (NIV)
“Woe to me because of my injury!
My wound is incurable!
Yet I said to myself,
This is my sickness, and I must endure it.”
“An illness needn’t define us,” says Tammy. “We often discover strength when we have no other choice.”
In writing “Samantha’s Story,” Tammy hopes to assist other families to find hope in dealing with their child’s chronic illnesses. She works closely with Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation of America (CCFA) to provide awareness and help to parents and families.
A guest speaker whose daughter has Crohn’s disease will share their experience with the illness that evening as well.
Further information about Author Tammy Greene and CCFA can be discovered at Tammy’s Facebook Page: Author Tammy Cantrell Greene.
