LOS ANGELES , CALIFORNIA , UNITED STATES, July 1, 2019 / — California's, Sheila Anthony Shaw released her memoir, The Sheila Anthony Shaw Story: A Memoir (2019, HS Mercy Publishing) on June 27, 2019. Fran Briggs wrote the foreword and shared an excerpt today, a spokesperson from Briggs' office announced today.

The following is an excerpt from the book.


What drove a woman to keep searching for answers after more than fifty-five misdiagnoses by more than fifty-five doctors and specialists? You will find the answer before you read the first chapter of this book; but you'll be compelled to keep reading as you become more and more fascinated by the events of Sheila Anthony-Shaw's extraordinary life.

Her memoir is enjoyable and sheds light on her abilities, determination, and accomplishments. Each piqued while she was enduring psychological and physical duress. I had the privilege of coaching Sheila through the literary process. I'm pretty sure she had no idea what she was signing up for. Not that it mattered.

Sheila's up for—and typically masters—any challenge that comes her way. As you read her memoir you'll be moved by her struggles, victories, and most importantly, her resiliency. You’ll be moved to recalibrate what you believe is possible for your own life.

This is a story of healing and hope. It illustrates that we all have the ability to do just about anything. Holding tightly to the principles of her faith, Sheila navigates past death on at least three occasions, and valiantly blows past unrelenting pain and blatant blunders in the medical system. Be prepared to brace yourself when it gets intensely emotional.

I also advise you to hang on as she experiences: an unceremonious year as a California beauty queen; being slighted by the love of her life days after losing their unborn child; a heartless doctor who rather remove her reproduction organs than address her ruptured appendix, and driving alone across the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge without being able to use the gas, or brake pedals in her car.

Sheila Anthony-Shaw is an energetic, sixty-year-old who still has the same spark, infectious smile, and wisdom which were responsible for her being crowned Miss Fresno County forty years ago.
