Following on from the book we featured last month, A Funny Thing Happened on the way to the Neurologist, by OMSer Shona Daubé, we are very excited to let you know that a second OMSer, Angela Amos, is the author of a new book aimed at breaking MS down into very simple terms for friends, family, and importantly, children from the age of around seven, to understand.
Entitled Can I tell you about Multiple Sclerosis? Angela’s book introduces us to Maria, who is on holiday with her family when the first symptoms of MS began to appear.
It goes on to tell us about her diagnosis, the next steps in terms of medical professionals and treatment, and then explores how it affects friends and family, as well as Maria, and how she goes on to manage it.
The different types of MS are explored in a much simpler way than we find in the heavy medical literature which surrounds the subject. Offering practical advice, Angela helpfully points people in the direction of recommended worldwide organisations from whom to seek support, including OMS.
She cites Professor Jelinek’s Evidence-Based 7 Step Recovery Program as a recommended read for adults, family members, friends and professionals. Furthermore, the publisher has gifted a 10% discount for our newsletter readers and website users. To take advantage of this offer, use the code SCL when purchasing the book from this site:
