While working on a book about her uncle's amazing World War II survival story, Barbara Wojcik learned she was suffering from a terminal cancer. She and her family turned to RMA Publicity in 2021 to make Barbara's dream of sharing her story on WGN TV in Chicago come true. That's just one of the many media placements we were able to secure.
Barbara and her husband and co-author, Jim Wojcik, also appeared on WCCO Television in Minneapolis, and they wwre interviewed for stories in The Pioneer Press, The White Bear Press and The Chicago Sun Times newspapers.
Barbara and Jim's book, Bud's Jacket, is the true story of a Chicago airman who was shot down over France during World War II, and fortunately with the help of many ordinary citizens in France was able to find his way home. Barbara Wojcik is Bud's niece. She and her husband wrote the story using a box of momentos left behind by her uncle after he died.
In addition to the successful media campaign, RMA Publicity also helped set up a book event during which more than 100 copies of the book were sold.
