The book is a memoir of my mother’s experience with ALS, a difficult, debilitating, and progressive illness. The story takes the reader on a personal journey of symptoms and mis-diagnoses, and it follows the progression of this disease as her body deteriorates. It also includes difficult, and at times volatile, family interactions, and is a very raw and personal view of what we went through.
This book brings a personal perspective and many insights to an issue that is not often discussed. As uncomfortable as it was to expose what we personally went through as a family, I have not pulled any punches, and I have put it all out there for the world to see.
In addition to the struggles, this book lets people know that they are not alone, and it offers helpful suggestions to others dealing with a similar illness, in order to help other families navigate their way through this type of struggle.
This book would appeal to anyone dealing with a difficult or progressive illness, or anyone interested in a personal view of ALS and how it affects the rest of the family.
My book is available through Amazon.com and Barnes & Noble. It will be available shortly through Kindle as well.

Life keeps changing in strange and interesting ways for all of us, and as it does, new worlds continually open up.
