There are times in life that shake us to our very foundations. We wish for things to get better, fast. But the truth is that moments of “falling apart” are also our most powerful catalysts for growth and change. In Falling Together, Donna Cardillo, a registered nurse, Dr. Oz blogger, and beloved public speaker, reflects on the overwhelming challenges that fall into every life, and the renewal that comes when we are able to meet them with courage. A funny, big-hearted self-help memoir that takes on issues like divorce, caregiving, and burnout—and many women’s biggest enemies of all, fear, insecurity, and self-doubt—Falling Together shows how to turn the challenges that threaten to knock us to the ground into the building blocks we need to become more successful, more joyful, and ultimately, more alive.

“I was most touched by the sheer resiliency and determination that is at the heart of Donna Cardillo’s life story. No matter what life catapulted her way, she found a way to use her own resources, and those of others, to get through. Even better, the lessons she learned from each challenge embedded themselves within her and moved her successfully forward. Highly recommended for any woman looking to find her way in this journey we call life.”
