'As a child, Petrea King was dogged by health issues, spending many years in and out of hospital. Her desire to help others impelled her to become a nurse, naturopath, herbalist, homoeopath, yoga instructor, meditation teacher and counsellor. When diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia in her thirties, Petrea defied her dire prognosis. Believing meditation and the integration of past trauma were key to her recovery, and seeing crises as a catalyst for personal growth, understanding, healing and peace, Petrea founded the Quest for Life Foundation in 1990. Up Until Now is the inspirational story of a woman who has dedicated her life to supporting people suffering devastating physical and mental illnesses.'
