“My life journey has careened through tragedy, triumph, poverty, abuse, chronic illness, training and world records. Although life circumstances and habits may shape our environment and influence our choices, it takes an instant to change our path and create positive scenarios for our lives and those around us.
My passion is to entertain, educate and use my horrific, wonderful, interesting history to inspire others to experience all that life can be.”

Jaidon is Annetta’s 16 year old son. He is in the late stages of a degenerative brain disease.
“Jaidon’s prognosis was 3 years. We’ve had the honor of having him with us far longer than we expected. He is the most content soul I have ever known. Currently he can only move his right hand, eyes and right foot. He hasn’t been able to speak a word since he was 8 but he has a great sense of humor. He loves watching our crazy family. I am grateful and honored that he chose me to be his mother.
Jaidon has changed my life and gifted me patience, compassion, selflessness & strength.
When he leaves we will celebrate his amazing life. And he will celebrate ours, knowing that he taught us so well how to love unconditionally and take from life all that is good.”
