Ever notice how the same medical system designed to help you heal can also drive you crazy? The forms, the run-around, the conflicting treatment options! Who can sort through it all?
Loretta Schoen has personally walked through her own major medical issues including cancer and been a primary health advocate for others. She knows how the system works, and doesn’t work. Now, Loretta shares her experience and insights in a new book titled, Surviving Medical Mayhem – Laughing When it Hurts, published by HigherLife. In the book Loretta explores, educates and empowers the reader to manage the medical system maze with confidence.
Difficult subjects are treated with grace and honesty using humor to cushion the pain and comforting Biblical passages to light the way. As Loretta explains, “When you gain a higher perspective you can more easily learn how to handle the outbreaks and see the message behind the issues.”
In addition to being an author, Loretta is a gifted speaker who loves to both encourage and inform others through both her speaking and writing. Her insights help others not just survive but thrive as they journey through a medical crisis.
In the book, Loretta shows her readers how to tap into the incredible healing power of 3 vital ingredients to restoring your health: knowledge, humor and faith. These three “miracle medicines” can make all the difference in how you navigate the mayhem of medical adversity and help you walk through this new journey with more joy, confidence and peace.
Loretta was born in Glen Cove, New York and now resides in Central Florida. She lives with her husband of 43 years (and counting), in what she affectionately calls “The Schoen Assisted Living Facility.” Loretta is a contributing author to Chicken Soup for the Soul and conducts workshops on Surviving Medical Mayhem which empowers people facing medical adversity with education, faith and humor as they navigate the medical arena.
