Above the Ashes
by Keven Conley Jr.
Mental illness can be devastating and crippling to those who are suffering. Kevin Conley, a wildland firefighter, knows firsthand how depression and a severe panic attack disorder can affect every aspect of life. This is a story about how he decided to fight back with all his willpower.
On a journey to find peace and clarity, to finally put his demons to rest, Kevin rode his bicycle 3,500 miles across the US in 47 days with his best friend by his side, his puppy named Rocky. On his journey, he succeeded in slaying the dragon that was destroying his mind.
Now he strives to save others.
