THROWAWAY CHILD is a true story, as told to me by John A. Garrison.

     His dad threw rocks, spiteful words, and a pitchfork at him. His mother told him he should have been stillborn. They gave him away when he was eleven years old. He has one picture of himself as a child, a school photograph where he smiles, despite his abusive home life. He finished eighth grade while staying with a kind cousin, the only good home he had. But when a neighbor for whom he worked abused him, John set out to make his way in the world and at age thirteen, rode a train to Denver.
    How John A. Garrison overcame his early years and became a millionaire is a story he wants to share, to inspire others to never give up, no matter how difficult life is.
