Reach Out America – From Sex Change to Mom – a life transformed

Janiece Hartmann wanted to have a sex change operation, but on the day her appointment to begin the process was scheduled, tragedy struck. Working as a printer’s apprentice, her arm was caught in the rollers, removing flesh and muscle, putting her in the hospital with many surgeries and scarring her for life. In the years that followed, Janiece spent time in and out of mental hospitals, attempted suicide many times, and eventually was diagnosed with a hopeless brain condition and sent home to die. Listen to her amazing story of healing, redemption and transformation as I interview Janiece, her husband Joseph, author of the book about her life, Sentenced to Death, Destined for Life, and those who reached out to Janiece during her journey towards wholeness.
