After publishing a memoir on life after retirement, Hiding in My Pajamas, and launching a national speaking career at 75, Becky Kueker thought she had it all. Then a complicated surgery requiring six months in a wheelchair turned her life in a new direction. After fighting fear, depression and the realization that she would once again have to start over, Becky shares her journey and highlights many of the inspiring people she met along the way.
