Capricorn Rising - A Memoir

Lauren Dicair  HATFIELD, PA
An only child who almost dies at birth and endures two decades of multiple traumas in the affluent suburbs of Philadelphia.  It's a story about addiction, child abuse, isolation, suicide, PTSD, survival, hope, strength, and the will to thrive.

And it's my memoir.

I'm at the point in my writing where it's time to hire a fresh set of professional eyes to go over my manuscipt with me.  And professional editing don't come cheap, especially on a Social Worker's income.

So I'm reaching out to the public to ask for funding so that I can fulfill my dream of sharing my inspirational story with the rest of the world.

ANY amount is greatly appreciated. Thank you.
