I would like to thank the Chicopee Register for such a beautiful article they wrote on my book,
"Strength in a Heartbeat", Diary of a Heart Transplant. Thank you Chance Viles writer of the article.
Strength in a Heartbeat, is a journal I kept when my daughter Lauren Meizo was placed on the heart transplant list, living our lives in the hospital. I am sharing our story in hopes of helping other families living in the same situation we were in. Living in a hospital is hard, very hard, and lonely. I want other families to know they are not alone. I have created a Facebook page; Strength in a Heartbeat, a forum for families to communicate with each other waiting and also to those who have lived it. We all need a support system, I am hoping this will become one.
I know I am not the only one who could say this:
I have slept in a hospital chair, window sills and couches. Skipped meals and cried from fear. I have become an expert on my child's condition. I am a strong advocate that had to make life-changing decisions. Lynne

Today I launched the Facebook Page for "Strength in a Heartbeat". The goal for the page is to connect families that are living in the hospital, or have lived in the hospital for lengthy periods of time. I believe it is important for these families to know that they are not alone during a very stressful time.
I remember when I have lived at Brigham and Women's Hospital, in Boston Ma. with my daughter Lauren Meizo. There are so many people around you all the time, but I always felt alone.
Help me to help others by sharing this Facebook Page to reach the families that would be interested in joining in.
If you have any helpful suggestions that you would like to pass on, please feel free to post a message.
We are all in this crazy world together, and together we will overcome our toughest obstacles.
The launch of "Strength in a heartbeat", Diary of a Heart Transplant book, is still in the works. Tomorrow it will be available on Kindle, for everyone who love's to read on their devices. Didn't forget about you, just took some time.
I would like to "Thank" everyone who has read the book for your kind words on our story. This is a true story, of being placed and living on the Heart Transplant waiting list. I published our story for one reason-to help others that are living in the same situation that we were living in. To let them know they are not alone. When I would walk around the hospital or sit and just watch my daughter, I felt so alone. Thought I was the only person with all these feelings of frustrations and loneliness.
If you know anyone that my book could help, please pass this one. At the end of the book, I created a list of helpful hints of amenities you can ask the hospital you may be staying in. You would be surprised at what is offered, but you need to ask. Vouchers for food or parking, just to name one.
