One Call Away by Brenda Warner is the memoir about her life. Brenda is the wife of NFL star Kurt Warner. She is also a registered nurse and a former Marine. The memoir details the dramatic and often devastating life turns she’s experienced, one phone call at a time, and how she has dealt with them and survived.
