The Sheila Anthony-Shaw Story


From stopping a heartless doctor who rather remove her reproduction organs than address her ruptured appendix; to an unprecedented year as a California beauty pageant queen; to being abandoned by the love of her life days after losing their unborn child and being given more than fifty-five misdiagnoses by more than fifty-five doctors and specialists. This story of how Sheila Anthony-Shaw kept her faith overcoming these events —and others—will echo down through the ages.
