A Ticket to He . . . is the true story of how Wanda Schnebly and her family's lives were thrust into turmoil and grief because of medical malpractice and what they did to survive and find joy again. There are three powerful elements in her story.
One is the medical fiasco that destroyed Kelly Schnebly's life and the resulting malpractice lawsuit. Its award of $1,044,000 was the largest judgment to a minor in the nation and was a catalyst for the medical malpractice panic that started in the seventies and continues yet today.
The second is the inspiring struggle of how Wanda led volunteers in her community to build a pilot exemplary educational and residential program locally for children like Kelly. It started in her home as a day care program for four children, and continues today in six Iowa communities serving nearly two hundred persons. Its 2008 annual report lists income of $12,601,936 with expenditures for services of $12,184, 063. See krysilis.org
The last is a series of powerful and mysterious paranormal events. She doesn't ask the reader to agree with her; rather she shares the fears and wonderments of these up-close encounters of life, death, an inner voice, Jesus, nightmares, and other paranormal events, such as the unfinished last word in the title of this book, A Ticket to He . . .
Perhaps the finest hours of her story are the ones that share how Kelly's spirit broke through his profound and multiple handicaps and touched others. He has a legacy few people achieve. He was a hero, and he inspired others to be heroes too.
