Bright blue sky and perfect “fast snow.” What started as an exciting day of skiing ended in Teresa Rock’s near death battle for survival   after collapsing on a Colorado mountain.


Like A Rock is the true account of this vibrant young woman’s courage and persistence to recover from a devastating brain hemorrhage that robbed her of life’s abilities we all take for granted.


Teresa’s story is a testament to the struggle of letting go in order to accept help. It reveals how her past prepared her to access inner strengths and the will to persevere.





Signed copies of Like A Rock are available @ $15.95 + postage.
