Overview

Martha McCorkle Anderson's memoir, as told to author Alice E. Sink, reveals both happy and tragic times in her eighty-three years of life. She doesn't want anyone to think she's been miserable all the time. But some experiences have been tougher than others.
As this book goes to publication, Martha is suffering from many life-threatening illnesses, and her doctor has given her only a few months to live. Now is the right time to review her life. She is in constant pain; however, she continues to apply her great sense of humor, which has always sustained her.
This is the true story of sheer guts and determination as Martha strives to overcome her rape as a young girl, two bizarre marriages, her nurses' training, which leads her to perform an amateur home mastectomy on her mother, scams she endures and overcomes, and harsh treatment from some of her family.
Weighing 420 pounds in 1976, Martha underwent what she believes is one of the first gastric bypass operations after her doctor, who had never before performed that surgery, told her she could die if he operated, and she could die if he didn't She made the decision to go forward with the surgery. The aftermath was no fairy-tale.
Martha McCorkle Anderson is definitely "a walking miracle."
