She also shares a valuable 12-step outline on how to find help if you suspect yourself, or someone you know, has any mental issues that need to be dealt with. From birth in 1947, Rebecca showed signs of abnormalities triggering an abundance of treatments prescribed by her father, a renowned surgeon in the United States. Her school years brought on a host of highly addictive prescription and over-the-counter medications in unlimited supply. This deadly dependency continued throughout her successful adult life until she finally realized she was literally playing Russian roulette with her life. Born in York, Pennsylvania, Rebecca struggled through daily existence, culminating in her receiving a Masters Degree in Special Education from Boston University in 1970. She then married her high school sweetheart, an exchange student from Australia and emigrated Down Under. There, she has taught Music for Tots for the past 35 years, releasing a book, CD and DVD to help parents give their young children a musical head start. Rebecca and her husband Brett now enjoy living in the tropics of Far North Queensland, off the Great Barrier Reef, with their family settled nearby. Perhaps the most incredible story you will ever read, Take Flight will instill hope and inspire those who need help to seek it before it is too late.
