Samantha Michael and her aunt, Gisele Microys, MD were inspired to create An Aid to Help Foundation after Samantha was almost killed by an impaired driver when she was a teenager. Hearing Samantha speak from strength in telling her story will hopefully be meaningful to others. Samantha feels that many things contributed to her remarkable recovery, with music being one of the major tools. This inspired her to create a music CD to help raise funds for the mission described above. The variety of pieces of music she chose for the CD are of a slower tempo for the enjoyable relaxation of body and mind. Songs for Everyone can be used by people of any age in a number of ways – background music to work or study, music to go to sleep, listen to with family, etc.
It was after this CD was created that Samantha wrote her story as a memoir The Beauty of My Shadow: A Story of Strength that was published in print in October 2014. She then wrote her story in fairy tale style for children aged 6-9 in The Princess in Pink: A True Tale. The music CD Songs for Everyone is a soundtrack for both of these books. Samantha also wrote a memoir for children aged 9 and above, for her dog Mya Mia Happy Michael titled The Butterflies Above My Bed. Mya is raising money to help save the Monarch butterfly! More information about these books can be found through links on the home page.
