Yet Here I Am
One Woman's Story of Life After Death
By Deborah Binner
Deborah Binner suffered the unimaginable pain of losing her precious daughter Chloe to bone cancer when she was just eighteen years old. Still blinded by grief, just eighteen months later, she received the devastating blow that her beloved husband Simon had motor neurone disease.
He refused to allow the disease to take him and instead opted for an assisted suicide in a Swiss clinic, leaving Deborah bereaved once more. Many people would have sunk into despair but Deborah who had another daughter and two grandchildren to think of, knew she couldn't afford to succumb to her heartbreak and instead set about carving an altered future for herself and small family.
In Yet Here I Am she talks candidly of the crippling pain she suffered and find a form of happiness once more.
