This memoir is about how Cynthia O'Neal went from being a model/actress/wife of a movie star to the founder of Friends in Deed, an amazing organization in NYC which provides services to people with life threatening illnesses, their famlies, friends, caregivers, and people who are grieving.

This is a book that has real life lessons to impart.
