With a career spanning twenty-eight years, Donna Magee exemplified the American working wife, complete with fantastic husband, beautiful home and positioned where she was hardly in want of anything. Until one morning in January, when an undiagnosed aneurysm ruptured, changing her life forever. From the moment her head 'exploded' through surgery and a three year battle to live, Donna tells a chilling true account of life after surviving this nearly always fatal medical crisis. Her odds of ever living a normal life again were less than 1 in 8. The third leading cause of death in the US, ruptured cerebral aneurysms have no known cause and give no warning. Yet, Donna Magee lived to tell the tale. From her survivor’s point of view, the frightening and painful details are captured in this powerhouse of insight and information.
