Loving Tiara is a compelling memoir that will encompass your every thought, break your heart, fill you with hope, and leave you with a sense of awe.

"I have found the quiet. At forty-five years old, my life's mission was complete. If I died tomorrow, I would be proud of the life I lived." - Loving Tiara

When Tiffani married the love of her life, Lou, after graduating from college, she assumed she would continue to live the affluent life she had always known, having grown up in Newport Beach, California. She never imagined she would soon be stalked by creditors, driving a car on the repossession list and forced to worry about providing basic necessities for her family, such as buying diapers and groceries. This increasingly desperate situation forced her to decide to return home to her parents with her baby and husband.

After getting their life back on track, and with Tiffani in her final year of law school, they decided to have another baby. At eight months old, however, they discovered that their new daughter Tiara had Tuberous Sclerosis, a rare genetic disorder resulting in intractable epilepsy, developmental delay, chronic hospital admissions, and uncontrollable violent behaviors. So how did Tiffani cope with her new reality? She chose to fight. She challenged the doctors, battled the insurance companies, and refused to give up caring for Tiara even when her own life was at risk.

The author's story of unconditional love, unimaginable challenges, and, ultimately, triumph, is a compelling one, which will take hold of your heart and not let go. This memoir will inspire you to tackle fear, encourage you never to give up, and remind you always to trust your gut instincts.

Tiffani Goff, a Southern California native, is known for her authenticity and honesty while blogging about her extraordinarily challenging life at tiffanigoff.com. A law school graduate who stayed at home to raise her three daughters while navigating the unpredictable world of tuberous sclerosis. She is the owner of twig DECOR, an interior decorating business, a volunteer for the TS Alliance, and a devoted Catholic. She is married to her college sweetheart, Lou, and they spend their free time together at home in Costa Mesa, usually drinking Chardonnay. Loving Tiara is her first book, but almost certainly not her last.
