MILTON, Wash., July 18, 2003 (PRIMEZONE) -- Valerie Yarborough was born with a talent for broadcasting and was headed up the star-studded ladder of success. In an instant, her doctor's words sent her reeling. The verdict was a little-known disease called scleroderma and the sentence was death. She had two choices: give in to her despair or resolve to triumph over tragedy. She chose the latter and, after battling the disease for several years, she beat it and set out on a "mission of TEARS (To Educate America Regarding Scleroderma)" to not only alert the public to the disease that nearly killed her, but also to illustrate the immense power of a determined spirit to overcome any challenge. With Angel with a Broken Wing: My Journey Into Healing (now available through 1stBooks), Yarborough brings a message of hope to the broken and tragedy-struck.
