About the author (2009)

Peggie (Wolfington) O'Neill was a native Philadelphian. Growing up in a household full of love, laughter, and affirmation made her the dynamic woman who, throughout her life, touched so many. She and Frank O'Neill were married 54 years, raised six sons, and were blessed with 16 grandchildren. Peg considered her greatest gift and role to be that of wife, mother, and grandmother. It all began in 1965 when she followed the advice of a dear friend to make time for herself to pray every morning. That led to a daily routine Peg called the "Peace Way" that she practiced for 46 years until she died of bladder cancer in September 2011. Juggle Without Struggle is Peg's gift to the world. It is her passionate legacy that she was determined to leave behind for her family, friends, and those she spent 278 Juggle Without Struggle hours with in chemotherapy and radiation treatment.
