When you walk through the front door of these writers lives, you wont leave without a renewed sense of hope and a new definition of courage.Montel WilliamsEach week in the United States 200 people are diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, adding exponentially to the 350,000 people nationwide and the 2.5 million people worldwide with MS. This book is the first of its kind to share the real-life struggles and triumphs of those facing MS in one inspiring collection.In their own compelling words, seventeen people with MS take readers on a journey sharing their dreams, their emotional and physical battles, their struggle to accept the illness and their courage to create new lives. People like Israeli artist Inbal Tsur, who discovers a new way to paint after losing the use of her arms- renowned oceanographer Richard Radtke, who becomes the first disabled man to reach the South Pole- a pilot who battles the FAA to keep her pilot s license- and a woman who is now enjoying life as a mother to a new baby despite doctors advice not to further risk her health by becoming pregnant.When the Road Turns will be an encouragement for anyone with MS or other chronic illness, as well as those who want to better understand the disease, which may be affecting someone they love.
