Overview

Struggling with Serendipity tells the true story of a mom's crisis, a daughter's paralysis, and extraordinary travels that carried them from a small town in Ohio to Seattle, Harvard, Capitol Hill, and around the world. After an accident, a heartsick mom battles depression and guilt, while a shy but determined teenager fights the harsh physical challenges of quadriplegia. Fourteen-year-old Beth believes everything will be okay. Cindy is certain that nothing will ever be okay again. Struggling with Serendipity explores the power of hope while navigating unknown waters of disability. Cindy confronts her altered identity and mental health. Beth sets impossible goals as she tries to swim with legs that don't work and hands that can't cup the water. Together they find a new normal, with serendipity in the most unlikely of moments. Waves of adventure follow, including Beth's invitation to join the Harvard Women's Swimming and Diving team--the first with a visible disability. Struggling with Serendipity takes us on an incredible journey to the end of an era that leaves Cindy and Beth transformed. Everything really is okay. And if you never give up? Hope wins.

This is a beautifully written book, and one that the world very much needs right now! - Jeff Bell, Author of When in Doubt, Make Belief Struggling with Serendipity is a fantastic story of achievement and success in the midst of seemingly insurmountable challenges. I can't recommend this book enough! - Julie Dussliere, Chief of Paralympic Sport, United States Olympic Committee This story is the epitome of transforming pain into passion. - Danni Starr, Author of Empathy and Eyebrows: A Survivalist's Stories on Reviving Your Spirit After Soul-Crushing Sh*tstorms Cindy's story, Struggling with Serendipity, captures the honesty and reality of having a loved one face a possible lifetime of paralysis. And, it is with love that Cindy and Beth find the joy inside the hardship and seize a new future full of hope and possibilities. Cindy reminds us that it is possible to persist and thrive no matter the circumstances. - Peter Wilderotter, President and CEO of the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation This is a remarkably honest and important book. Cindy is not a 'victim;' her daughter is not a 'super-heroine.' This is an honest and meticulous account of how they both move forward to create successful lives not defined by tragedy or disability. It's an intimate true story that's a privilege to read. - Thea Flaum, President of the Hill Foundation and Founder of Facing Disability We can live without many things, but living without hope is damn near impossible. Cindy and Beth's story reminds us that no matter the circumstances or diagnosis, with hope and love, joy is possible and life is worth living. I am simultaneously challenged and inspired by their shared journey. - Terry McGuire, Founder of Giving Voice to Depression Everything about this story is beyond belief, and yet it's all true. Cindy and Beth create their own miracles, and this book is one of them. Struggling with Serendipity is a gift to all of us. I recommend it with gratitude and awe. - Sandy Asher, Author and Playwright You'll be glad you read this book! - April Perry, Founder of Power of Moms
