YORBA LINDA, CALIFORNIA, USA, April 18, 2024 / — In this 155-page memoir, “Overcoming All Odds: I Overcame Poverty, Illnesses, and Abuse” author, educator, and motivational speaker Ron Reel invites readers into the poignant saga of his upbringing amidst the setbacks and struggles, where he rose from the depths of poverty, illness, and abuse to forge a path of success.
