Equally important is she is a wife, a mother and a daughter of Brooklyn - good reasons to know her. But there is one more. She nearly didn't make it here today. She almost died. Jennifer Jones Austin in the springtime of a busy life came down with a fever. It was not the flu. It was acute myeloid leukemia and the prognosis - imminent death. "Consider It Pure Joy" is her courageous, revealing and often humorous story of her horrific battle to live. And the gift, she says, that battle gave her.
