Each chapter in this book is someone who has been diagnosed with MS and their story. In reading I found that all these people had not only MS in common, but also time and time again they refereed to it's all in the attitude. One person said, MS may have control of my body, but not my attitude. Each person has their own story and how they are dealing with MS in their life. It gave me a better understanding of what my friend, who has MS, goes through each day. While Dr. Laina Turner-Molaski did not write these stories each individual person wrote them, I must stay true to the curse word warning I have for each book I read and review. There are a few writers that chose to use words that I consider curse words, (see post here) so be warned. It wasn't alot out of about 25 authors only a handful did use words I consider curse words. This book did help raise an awareness of MS in me and learning a little more about the disease. I loved the subtitle MS: Orange the new Pink.
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.
