I wrote a children's book called "The Bravest Boy I Ever Knew". It was recently published by Tate Publishing. This story is about a boy named Michael who tells about his best friend who is disabled. After reading hundreds of children's books, I never came across a book about disabled children and "normal" children being friends. I want "normal" children to know that disabled children can have the same likes,dislikes,interests, and talents as them.
I wrote this book about a cousin of mine who was not supposed to live to be a teenager. He lived to be 43 years old. He had a disease called Familial Dysautonomia. He never let this disease take over his life. He lived every day as a new day. Part of the proceeds from this book will go to FD to help with research.
