Finding your Passion by Dr. Laina Turner-Molaski


Today for our guest post I have a little article from author of The MS Project: Orange is the new pink, Dr. Laina Turner-Molaski.  Please be sure to return on Mar. 25 for my review of this book.  Thank you Laina for supplying this guest post.

Finding Your Passion

I was excited when I got the chance to guest post on this bog because the title of the blog, My heart belongs to books, just made me smile because we all need a passion. Something that makes us happy (besides of course family and friends). That’s how I feel about raising awareness for Multiple Sclerosis, which is why I put together the book to help promote awareness called The MS Project.

Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is a disease of the central nervous system of which there is no known cause. When my mother was diagnosed back in the 1980’s there wasn’t much known about the disease and unfortunately the same is true today. However, you can make people aware one person at a time and with the book, The MS Project, and the corresponding iPhone app and website I am hoping I can bring awareness to MS one person at a time.

The book is a compilation of stories by people who have MS or by people who have loved ones with MS. The purpose is to provide motivation and inspiration through sharing these stories and hopefully interest more people in learning more about the cause.

Dr. Laina Turner-Molaski is a Faculty Chair with Capella University. She is also an author of both fiction and non-fiction and is a business consultant.

Laina’s mother was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) in 1985. After her passing in 2000 Laina became committed to bringing more awareness to the disease.

You can reach Dr. Turner-Molaski through the website The MS Project at www.themsproject.com
