Meet Janesville author Leanne Lippincott-Wuerthele, writer, newspaper columnist and inspirational speaker, who has survived three enormous storms that came her way, by using humor, and the power of love, family, friends, and faith.

When she was 38, her world was rocked, when her husband, a pilot, was killed when his plane crashed. The next 'storm' was breast cancer. A few years ago, she had an aneurysm and extensive brain surgery.

Despite all this, she’s turned to humor as a healing and survival tool.
