NJ 12 News - Della Crews
Life deals us many hard blows that we often don't expect. I admire the fact that someone like Stacey Chillemi was thrown a curve ball that may have knocked many of us down to the point where many of us may not have wanted to get back up, but she did. It wasn't easy but she possesses a determined spirit that won't let her give up. For that reason Stacey will go far and achieve whatever dreams she sets her mind to accomplish. --Della Crews, Anchor/Talk Show Host, News 12, NJ

    to much god

    When I read the reviews there was not any mention of God. I was not aware the book would read like something i would pick up from a religious support group. i do not believe in God so I was very disappointed. I wish people could share there stories based on actual people who helped them like actual family members, friends neighbors. Things they dd to actually help out loved ones.
