in 1999 I was diagnosed with Crohn's Disease just six months after my brother took his life resulting in my quest to know the purpose of life and the truth.

The Jasmine in the Forest is about my personal journey with grief, Crohn's Disease and living life to the fullest. I truly believe there is a lot more to life than just our bodies. I also believe the human race is not always told the truth and that we all have the means to have a fulfilling life if only we open up to 'what if?'.


With my latest flare in 2018/2019 with a life-threatening Psoas Abscess, I thought I would never be well again. I'm here to say I lived through it all.
