About the Author

Welcome …

Rita Dearion is a single mother of one daughter and a mother figure to many. She loves entertaining family and friends, cooking, especially for the holidays, decorating and craft work. Until she retired for medical reasons at the young age of 38, Rita worked for the Pepsi Bottling Group as a New Business Sales Representative.

Rita resides in Northern California with her daughter, Jaymie, nephews and extended family. Her memoir, The Day that Changed My Life—For the Rest of My Life, is her first published work.

“Rita Dearion’s book captures the mind and attention straight from the start. Her accounts of how a single medical event spiraled into a decade of medical prognostication provides clear insight into how one must overcome the deepest of struggles and darkness when confronted with life-threatening guidance and advice from a medical system that wreaks with an inherent conflict between patient wellness and profitability.”
