A Life in Parts: A true story of an idyllic life, a devastating loss, and one woman's resolve to rise above it


by Vicki Bennington & Daniel Brannan


 


About the book:
On an ordinary winter day, Loretta Goebel was wrapping Christmas gifts in her basement when the doorbell rang. She rushed to answer the door, and in her haste, she hit her hand on the banister as she ran up the stairs. This seemingly innocuous injury eventually resulted in the amputation of both her legs, her left hand, and most of the fingers on her right hand. 


While suffering through several rounds of amputations and painful prosthetic parts, she had to adapt to life without fingers or feet. Fiercely independent, she refused to succumb to life as an invalid. Even the simplest things seemed insurmountable at first, but with the support of her family and friends, she relearned how to do everything—from feeding and dressing herself to driving a car.  


Her adjustment and recovery led to a friendship with Paul McCartney and Heather Mills, also an amputee. She helped Loretta find comfortable and attractive artificial legs that allowed her to regain her confidence and feel feminine again. Through all her pain and loss, Loretta never gave up, and her story of triumph is a testament to anyone who is struggling to adjust to difficult circumstances, whatever they may be. 


The foreword to the book was written by Heather Mills, and both Sir Paul McCartney and Cindy Crawford gave back-cover endorsements.


The Event:
We are expecting over 300 guests, and you don't want to be left out!  We promise that this will be a life-changing experience. When Loretta Goebel takes the stage, you will be inspired by her story of hope, courage, and resilience.  


The event is free and open to everyone, and we hope you will tell your friends and family about this event. Please RSVP -- we'll have your nametag waiting for you!
