The Yoga for Amputees founder shares her healing journey in this empowering memoir of surviving life-altering adversity with courage, strength, and humor. From the Roots explores one woman's decision to find grace, hilarity, and joy in the worst of circumstances. As a result of surviving two bouts of childhood bone cancer, Marsha Therese Danzig endures long-term side effects that include the amputation of her lower left leg, the loss of her bladder and kidneys, congestive heart failure, a kidney transplant, and scars galore. A rebel to the core, her story of defiance in the face of disease, doctors, establishment, insincere people, and anyone who would steal her joy or dampen her life force offers moments of profound depth and humor. From her early childhood diagnoses of Ewing sarcoma to her adventurous twenties traveling through Europe as an overly romantic amputee with a urostomy pouch; her thirties and early forties spent on dialysis as she watched other women grow careers and families; her marriage and subsequent divorce-and her hilarious chats with God about her sex life-Marsha shares the inspiring, juicy, laugh out loud, yet elegant true story of her life. "An unforgettable story of courage . . . Thank you Marsha, for sharing yourself so openly." -Kira Rosner, author of When Souls Take Flight: Coping with Grief
