My Sepsis Story

Most adults know to call 911 when a person exhibits symptoms of a heart attack. The Global Sepsis Alliance has found that only 19% of Canadians and 49% of Americans are familiar with sepsis, which is more common than heart attack and kills more people than cancer.

Four years ago, despite the refusal of her family doctor’s receptionist to grant her an appointment and a misdiagnosis by a clinic physician, Lisa Brandt survived this potentially fatal illness by the slimmest of margins. She recalls, “I didn’t know what was making me ill but I knew it wasn’t the flu, although that’s what I was being told by everyone around me. Had I listened to them I wouldn’t be here today.”

Brandt is sharing her story in an eBook in an effort to put the word sepsis into the minds of as many people as she can. “People tend to succumb to it because they don’t know it exists. I want to help change that. I’ll take you along on my journey from the start of my search for answers to the ER at University Hospital to home aftercare. It’s not maudlin or too medically graphic. And you already know it has a happy ending.”

The Naked Truth

The Naked Truth is the true story of my summer as a live-in worker at a popular nudist resort. It was at the end of the 1970’s when I was 18, the summer between high school and college and I needed a job. I was a small-town girl, naive and unsophisticated in the ways of the world, my heart and rampant nudity. These are all true stories of what happened that unforgettable summer.

Venus Rising

What do Oprah Winfrey, Tina Turner, Faith Hill, Shania Twain, Barbara Walters and Rosie O’Donnell all have in common? They all faced barriers to becoming successful but they went around them, over them or through them to achieve their goals. They started from humble beginnings and became icons. Venus Rising is a collection of biographies of women we know today as leaders in their field. It strips away the money and the fame to show the ordinary women – and girls – they were. If racism, poverty, bias and abuse didn’t stop them, what’s stopping you?

Celebrity Tantrums

Juicy stories of the most scandalous fits and fights of the famous.
