Amy Silverstein

Heart Transplant Survivor, Author of "Sick Girl" and "My Glory Was I Had Such Friends"

Amy Silverstein Biography

Author of the acclaimed memoir Sick Girl, healthcare speaker Amy Silverstein has experienced more in her young life than many ever expected. As a vibrant, energetic 24-year-old Phi Beta Kappa student at NYU Law, she learned that she had a failing heart – and would die without a transplant. At 25, she underwent transplant surgery, and for 20 years, her new heart has been beating strong.

In 2007, Silverstein published Sick Girl, her critically acclaimed memoir detailing her life and challenges. Voted winner of the Books for a Better Life Award and a finalist for the Borders Original Voice Award, Sick Girl has been called “remarkable” by Ted Koppel, “highly recommended” by Larry King, and “spectacular” by Dr. Mehmet Oz. The first book ever serialized by US News & World Report, it received more reader response than any health story in the magazine ever.

A popular inspirational speaker, Amy Silverstein shows audiences around the country that it is possible to overcome the biggest, most frightening health obstacles in our lives, and become successful in spite of challenges. While most of us will never experience a heart transplant at such a young age, her story is an “incisive, unflinching look at life, love, and extraordinary courage” that has changed lives.
