Color Me Sensitive is a courageously candid and honest story of a woman who,
confronted with a life-threatening disease, is forced to define what is truly
important and real in her personal life. The disease, sarcoidosis, remains a
medical mystery. Yet, in spite of the uncertainty and complications that faced
her, June Saunders Grayson learned not to be defined by her diagnosis and battle
with sarcoidosis; instead, fueled by the disease, discovers her true essence
through love, family and most importantly, a solid faith in God.
Describing her dramatic and sudden diagnosis, Grayson takes the reader on a
road map from meaningful turning points in her childhood to self-discovery
realized in adulthood. Grayson’s conversational and engaging style of writing
provides sometimes humorous, at times unsettling descriptions of her challenges
with the disease, while illustrating internal personal turmoil, private, almost
voyeuristic accounts of her troubled marriage, all while raising two young boys,
and managing a demanding career. Visually compelling metaphors catapults the
reader through the author’s spiritual growth.
"There is no doubt that I have exposed many layers of my life in this
book," says June, 'but I feel that in order to make a difference, in order
to affect change, you must be willing to share at the deepest level. That is
what I hope and pray has been accomplished with this story."
Grayson says that she feels strongly that although her struggles continue,
the disease was a gift to her. A gift that she believes will allow her to be a
vehicle to make a difference.
Sarcoidosis is an auto-immune disease that can be debilitating and sometimes
Sandra Conroy, founder and president of the National Sarcoidosis Resource Center
and a sarcoidosis patient herself, provides the foreword for the book.
