In 1975, twenty-nine year old Laurel Lee was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Disease and told by doctors she was going to die. Her husband, unable to cope, leaves her and three little children to fend for themselves. While Laurel fights desperately for her life, she keeps a journal. That journal, sent to publishers by her doctors, became the best selling book and CBS Tapestry: The Journey of Laurel Lee movie, Walking Through The Fire. Contrary to her prognosis, Laurel did not die but was propelled into world wide travel, adventure, challenge and sheer determination. "In one stroke, I cut with some mental shears that fifty-more-years river, leaving me a short stretch ... I want the privilege of guiding the arrows of my children and giving them the exhortations that can shoot them into the high place."
