Overview

What would you do if you were suddenly unable to breathe, forced to remain on oxygen 24/7, and told that the only chance you had for a "normal life" again was a double lung and heart transplant? At only twenty-two, Kimberly was diagnosed with a rare lung disease called pulmonary arterial hypertension. She watched her dreams fade as she was confined to a living room couch, unable to climb the stairs up to her bedroom, unable to go out with friends, and unable to work. What kind of life was this? How did this happen?

Kimberly was the light of her family. She cared deeply for those around her and embraced those who struggled, befriending those that society most often rejected. But a serious disease brought darkness into her world. Told by her older sister, Bittersweet chronicles the whirlwind diagnosis, Kimberly's struggle to maintain a positive attitude in the midst of trials and letdowns, and her ultimate transformation of faith and impact on those who knew and loved her. Both heart wrenching and frank, this account offers a glimpse into the life of a young woman coping with a terminal illness. Krysten Civitelli shares intimately of her sister's bravery and their family's faith. Bittersweet will inspire you to embrace life and the joys it offers.
