Phyllis Jankowiak's debut novel was released on Jun 4, 2005. She is a native born Chicagoan and loves the city life. She majored in piano in college at Roosevelt University; later went on to become a Respiratory Therapist. Phyllis continued to work as a therapist until the diagnoses of Multiple Sclerosis made it impossible to continue her job. She married, raised a son and now has a grandson.
While Phyllis was writing her first book her husband died...his last request to her was, "Honey, finish the book!" The book is only partly biographical, it non-fiction and was a complete labor of love for the writer. It all takes place in a chat room for cancer patients and Ms Jankowiak's attempt to bring this new self made family to life in her book... A JOURNEY FROM PAIN TO LOVE far surpasses her dream.
