Songs By Ruth

This is the narrative history and story behind the creation of my Songs By Ruth Project.
A project which I started while undiagnosed with brain tumors for a period of two years. As a mother of seven children, I could not simply give up and die and leave family with more question than answers. So, I created the songs by Ruth project to say, if it is with just a cell phone or my last breath, we can do accomplish things.
