For every person of prominence coping with chronic illness, there are hundreds of thousands of us who are doing our best to live fully with what life has dealt us. This is a topic that is very close to my heart because of my own experience and the courage I’m privileged to witness in my patients.

There is so much to discuss and share about living a satisfying life with chronic illness that I decided to write a book about it. This book will not be a downer! It will be funny, uplifting and a kick in the pants! I would love to hear about how you or someone you love thrives with, or in spite of, chronic illness.
