Overview

Fancy Feet: Turning My Tragedy Into Hope by Heidi Cave

A team of firefighters fought to save Heidi’s life after a horrific accident that killed her best friend, burned over 53 percent of Heidi’s body, and claimed both her legs. The following year followed countless surgeries, surviving, pain management, fighting, and loss. Until she finally faces the driver who changed her life, Heidi realizes she has one last hurdle: forgiveness.

Heidi Cave is a well-respected advocate for burn survivors and amputees, and serves on a board of advisors for the BC Professional Fire Fighters’ Burn Fund’s efforts to build a research laboratory and treatment center in Vancouver.

Heidi writes in a way that makes you feel like she is in the room with you having a conversation. She lets you in to her world, to her story, to the dark and to the light. I found myself reading through tears, through smiles at her snap-wit humor and her ability to fight, to find hope. Heidi is a powerful writer, poetic, and captivating. I highly recommend this book!
