Come by CRYSTAL Books and Gifts for their “Off The Shelf” Author Series on Saturday, April 29, 2017 at 12:00pm. Dana Liesegang local Author of Falling Up: My Wild Ride from Victim to Kick-Ass Victory will give a presentation of her amazing life story and be signing copies of her newly released book. This nationally released book has a special forward by Dr. Wayne W. Dyer, who was an instrumental inspiration for the book. This event is free to the public and is a great opportunity to meet local authors while enjoying fun and entertaining presentations by them.
At the age of 19, Dana was sexually assaulted by a fellow sailor and thrown off a cliff and left for dead. She survived, but woke up in a hospital hours later paralyzed from the neck down, with doctors giving no hope for recovery. They underestimated the spirit and stubbornness of their patient.
In Falling Up: My Wild Ride from Victim to Kick-Ass Victory, Dana recounts her agonizing and sometimes comical struggle from total dependence to doing the “impossible”: walking again. With equal parts humor and rawness, she brings us along on her wild ride, as she navigates her new world, hurtles through rocky relationships, deals with family secrets, and returns to her love of sports and the outdoors. In the process, she learns the importance of forgiveness, discovers the awe-inspiring power of belief and perseverance, and transforms herself from silent victim to outspoken advocate and inspiration for people everywhere. After all, sometimes an unexpected fall can lead a person to reach for magnificent heights.
