Purple Diamonds Dance

A Diabetic Memoir

by Steven M Grames

Book Image Not Available Book Image Not Available
The courageous true story of a married couple living life with the trials of juvenile diabetes.
Laura was a beautiful young woman who had it all: a loving and devoted husband, two children who she constantly doted over, and a life abundant with loving family and endless friends. She was a talented artist and singer-songwriter, and the kind of person that everybody wanted to know. Yet her life was anything but a normal one: Laura was also a juvenile diabetic. Through years of suffering from complications of the ruthless disease, which included 56 surgeries packed into just 14 years of her short life, she taught everyone around her how to love more fully, to give more freely, and to have the faith to endure even the most difficult of life's trials. Her story, written here from her husband's first-hand perspective, is one of courage and faith, of love and loss, and, ultimately, of letting go.
