When VA Healthcare Fails Patients

After many years of struggling, I lost my twin sister Kelli to over-prescribed, addictive, suicidal medications prescribed through the VA Hospital. A lawsuit was filed against the United States Government and a settlement agreement reached

This memoir includes actual journal entries written by Kelli, destined to pull on the heartstrings of even the sturdiest.

    VIRGINIA BEACH, VA, April 16, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Frustrated and angry, I wanted to immediately instill public awareness of the treatments associated with medications for patients diagnosed with PTSD; we both served together in the U.S. Navy for six years. So I wrote "Sister Surrendered" (an eBook and Paperback on amazon.com released April 12, 2014). It is a documented journey barely scratching the surface of the love between us. It's also an outlet for me to speak candidly and honestly about my struggles since Kelli's death. It is a love story turned tragedy, and now a mission. It's an exposure of one of the greatest healthcare failures killing Veterans and civilians today, and a cry for help to remedy the fiasco.

This memoir includes actual journal entries written by Kelli, destined to pull on the heartstrings of even the sturdiest. It's a book riddled with raw emotions that will pull you in, and by the end, undoubtedly have you empathizing with Kelli.
