CHOSEN: Book launched

CHOSEN is a story of hope and healing and a story that Charlene Barr asked her brother David to tell. This book is a must read this summer.

In Spring 2009 Charlene Barr was told the devastating news that she needed a lung transplant to survive. The very evening she received this news she made a decision; instead of simply waiting, she would use the time to raise money for a school in Uganda to help the children she had met in 2008.

Read this incredible story, told by her brother David that traces Charlene’s life, her struggles and her journey towards transplant.

Today Hidden Treasure stands in Charlene’s memory and Charlene’s Project continues the work she started. She couldn’t change her circumstances yet against all the odds she made an incredible choice – to look beyond herself and to think of others, even in the midst of her own crisis.

All monies raised through the sale of this book will be used to further the work of Charlene’s Project.
