One Step At A Time - Published by McGraw Hill, 1979, New York
Lenor Madruga had stunning beauty, vibrant health, a handsome,
loving husband, two wonderful young children, and a successful
modeling career when, on the morning of her 32nd birthday, she
discovered a small hard lumb on her thigh. It was cancer.
Within a few nightmare months, she had barely saved her life -
and lost her left leg.
"A Woman's Inspiring Struggle to Walk Again."
She was a woman who had everything --
suddenly fighting to keep from losing it all.
One Step at a Time is an autobiography translated into ten
languages and now in its third printing. It was an alternate
selection of Book of the Month and Doubleday Book Clubs and
featured as a five thousand word condensation in Family Circle
Magazine, and Readers Digest (internationally). It was a major
book of the month selection by France Loisirs, and chosen to
spearhead the National Cancer Crusade of France. Condensations
and pictorials of One Step At A Time (L'Energie De L'Espoir)
were featured in major French magazines such as France Soir
Magazine; Madame Figaro; and Le Monde and France Soir
What the critics said about One Step at a Time:
"Now this extraordinary woman tells the story of her struggle
to return from the abyss of pain, drug addiction,
self-torment, and depression that threatened to swallow up her
entire life. It is a triumphant story of her determination to
walk, dance, drive, swim, water-ski, ride horses, make love -
and do almost everything she used to do before her operation.
It is a story that will make you realize how great the power
of love and faith and courage can be - the revelation of a
woman who overcame all the odds to become whole again.
An encouragement to others at the critical times of their
lives." -- Publishers Weekly

Cry " --Signet

yourself and make the best of what is left." --Betty Rollins,
