My Amazing Journey chronicles the life of the author, a woman born with Muscular Dystrophy. It is a series of vignettes detailing circumstances and situations in the life of Ms. Donna Lamberti. During the course of the manuscript, the author, however, does not describe the sadness of being a disabled child and never dwells on the disease as the cause of difficulties in her life. Instead, the book is incredibly uplifting and positive, while at the same time extremely honest.

The story begins with childhood memories, including Ms. Lamberti's early education at the Crippled Children's Center, and goes on to describe how she overcame obstacles to pursue a Bachelor's degree and later a Master's degree in Rehabilitation Counseling. It continues to detail her career as a Leisure Counselor working with others with disabilities. There is even a bit of romance as the story progresses.

My Amazing Journey touches upon Ms. Lamberti's contributions to the community, her accomplishments on the State level, and her participation in the Victory Awards in Washington, D.C. Finally, the manuscript concludes by describing her illness and how she overcame the odds with courage and strength. Even today she challenges herself and her world while using a stretcher for mobility and a ventilator to breathe.
