Jolt : Stories of Trauma and Transformation
by Mark Miller




Overview -
A TRAUMATIC EVENT CAN DERAIL YOU--OR IT CAN PROPEL YOU INTO RECLAIMING AND REMAKING YOUR LIFE

The death of a child. Life-threatening illness. Plane crashes. Terror attacks. Natural disasters. Some of us never fully recover from unimaginable traumas like these, but some not only survive--they bounce back to thrive and grow.

Jolt tells the stories of people transformed by trauma, and the new paths that they pursue.

- Molly McDonald was an affluent suburban Detroit mom who faced financial ruin following a diagnosis of breast cancer. She started The Pink Project, which provides transitional financial assistance to low-income breast cancer patients.

- Liz and Steve Alderman lost their son in the World Trade Center on 9/11. As a tribute to him, they launched a foundation that builds and operates mental health clinics in post-conflict countries. More than ten years later, the foundation is going strong.

- John Gallina and Dale Beatty, both veterans of the Iraq War, suffered traumatic injuries. When they came home, they started Purple Heart Homes, a nonprofit that provides housing solutions for homeless and low-income veterans.

- Lucy McBath suffered the horrifying murder of her teenage son in a high-profile white-on-black shooting. Lucy quit her job as a flight attendant and has become a nationally known advocate for gun control.

Jolt: Stories of Trauma and Transformation tells the compelling stories of people who have moved beyond trauma to ask, "How can I make my life--and the lives of others--better?"
