RSP SUMMER BLOGFEST: Book Trailer Wednesday!

First Aid for Heroes by Jane H. Davis.

Everyone remembers where they were and what they were doing on the tragic day, September 11th, 2001. It is astonishing that this single day in our nation’s history could create such a dramatic chain of events, drastically affecting and altering so many lives. We each have our own story how this day affected us. This book is about Jane’s story; the days leading up to 9/11, her volunteering at Ground Zero in New York City for six and a half weeks, and the ensuing ten years. She persevered forward in her life with a passion while coping with her husband’s life threatening illnesses and the loss of her mother. These and many more defining moments forced Jane to examine her inner strength and ability to survive through very difficult and trying times.

About the author:  
Jane has been a volunteer for many years while traveling around the world with her husband during his military career with the US Army. Her major volunteer experience was in 2001 when she traveled to New York City, after 9/11; with the American Red Cross to work as a First Aid nurse at Ground Zero, taking care of the rescue and recovery workers.
In 2006, Jane’s husband received the diagnosis of Parkinson’s disease.  Thankfully, the disease is progressing slowly and he continues to work full time and lives an active life. In 2009 Jane’s husband was diagnosed with stage 4 Mantle Cell Lymphoma.  He currently is in remission.
Together they fight these battles and work on maintaining a positive outlook.
Jane and her husband Gary reside in Northern Virginia. She is a mother of two, and grandmother of three.
