Story of Heart Break, Faith, Failure and Triumph is Free on Amazon to Commemorate the 5th Anniversary of the Earthquake in Haiti

Saving Jimani: Life and Death in the Haiti EarthquakeJanuary 8, 2015 (LOS ANGELES, CA) – Monday, January 12th, marks the five-year anniversary of the devastating earthquake that struck Haiti, killing more than 250,000 people.
In recognition of the 5th anniversary of the Haiti Earthquake, the kindle version of Saving Jimani: Life and Death in the Haiti Earthquake will be available for free on Amazon until January 13, 2015.
Saving Jimani: Life and Death in the Haiti Earthquake is a book about Rene Steinhauer’s experience working as a nurse and disaster manager to help survivors of the Haiti Earthquake.
“Saving Jimani is so much more than the reporting of life and death in the Haiti earthquake. It is a story of raw human emotion, grappling with the reality of hundreds if not thousands of people with broken bodies and spirits seeking medical help in an area where there was none. It is the story of heart break, faith, failure and triumph,” says radio talk show host Leslie Carol Botha.
Rene Steinhauer RN, EMT-P, is an accomplished nurse with more than twenty years of skilled disaster experience. He has practiced medicine on all seven continents including working as a flight nurse in Antarctica, a combat medic in Iraq, and a disaster manager in Hurricane Katrina, the Asian Tsunami, Typhoon Yolanda in the Philippines, and the Haiti Earthquake. He most recently worked as a chief nurse in an Ebola Treatment Unit in Liberia.
“It is my hope that during this time of reflection, that people read the book, understand what happened and how it relates not only to the people of Haiti, but to the people of the United States,” says Rene Steinhauer. “Readers will better understand what can really happen when the government is paralyzed by a disaster much greater than Hurricane Katrina. This book is relevant to the public discourse about better disaster preparedness.”
