Having Multiple Sclerosis Doesn’t Mean You Have To Stop Living

In People with MS with the Courage to Give, twenty-four individuals come together to deliver one inspiring message about courage, adversity, and a life less ordinary.

A collection of inspirational stories that evoke courage and confidence. We don’t get to choose whether or not we have Multiple Sclerosis, but we do get to decide how we live with it. Author and MS warrior Jackie Waldmen delivers a personal message of hope in these twenty-four tales of individuals who did the unthinkable, went against the grain, and proved that a Multiple Sclerosis diagnosis does not box have to box you in.

Meet inspirational people and lifelong friends. Within these pages, you’ll meet individuals with MS symptoms—but that didn’t stop them from living their best life. You'll meet Alicia Conill, an M.D. turned founder of The Disability Experience. You'll also meet Anthony Zaremba, an employee almost fired because of his shaking hands, later recognized for his success in community gardens and Brooklyn wheelchair access. People with MS with the Courage to Give offers readers:

  • Powerful stories that show how nervous system disorders don’t define you
  • Inspirational quotes to boost your self-esteem throughout the day
  • Advice from people just like you who encourage you to do the impossible

If you enjoyed transformative books such as The Wahls Protocol, The Autoimmune Solution, or Goodbye Autoimmune Disease then you’ll love People with MS with the Courage to Give.

Teens with the Courage to Give

By

Call to Action

Lately, troubled teens have been dominating the headlines. But there are other stories that deserve the spotlight, stories about the many teenagers who have dedicated themselves to important, socially useful volunteer work and who will lead their generation toward a more hopeful tomorrow. The fourth in Conari Press' "Call to Action" series, Teens with the Courage to Give profiles thirty amazing young people throughout the United States and Canada who overcame great personal odds to reach out and help others while healing themselves in the process. Each has founded or is linked to a nonprofit organization that is also profiled in the book, to encourage other teens to embrace volunteerism.

In these inspiring pages, to name just a few of these heroic teenagers, you'll meet an amputee who runs in the Paralympics and spurs others on with his inner resolve; the son of a cancer patient who created support groups around the country for kids with sick parents; a girl who helped her mother and younger sister as they died of aids and who is now an aids awareness and prevention volunteer; and one of the students from the Littleton, Colorado, shooting who has gone on to create a teen drop-in center.

Through their courageous first person stories, these teens show that they are part of the solution to what ails today's society. Includes an extensive resource guide of volunteer opportunities and a classroom/group discussion guide.
