Atlanta, GA (BlackNews.com) â€“ After three heart attacks, a triple bypass surgery and one open heart surgery to install a life-saving mechanical heart/LVAD device, Rev. Dr. Sarah Ferguson is releasing her first memoir, A Killer Within: Down But Not Out on July 15th. The memoir highlights more than two decades of her own dangerous, challenging battle and triumph over heart disease. It is a tale of war, a fight to live on and her fight for purpose, hope and family.
Dr. Ferguson takes readers on an amazing journey that chronicles her life as an Army wife married to a military physician and as a career-driven mother dedicated to serving and giving to others despite a stress induced lifestyle.
A Killer Within: Down But Not Out sheds light on an alarming diagnosis, bouts with depression and ultimately, deep, renewed faith. The reader will learn how to deal with negative life threatening news, find motivation regardless of their religious belief and gain a renewed sense of purpose – especially when things seem to be at a breaking point. The book is lined with key scriptures that Dr. Ferguson used to strengthen her spiritual life and move toward recovery.
Dr. Ferguson is a married mother of two who holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration from Johnson C. Smith University and a Masters of Divinity, Masters of Theology and a Doctor of Ministry from Christian Life School of Theology. Visit www.DrSarahFerguson.com to learn more.
