Meet Maria - a woman with Multiple Sclerosis (MS). Maria tells the story of her holiday with her husband Ben, her children Cara and Dino, and Teddy the dog, which was interrupted when she began to feel dizzy, exhausted and weak. She explains how this led to her diagnosis and describes what MS is, how it affects her daily life and what others can do to help. This illustrated book will be an ideal introduction to MS for children from the age of 7, as well as older readers. It will help family, friends and carers to better understand and explain MS, and will be an excellent starting point for group discussions.

1. Brief Introduction. 2. Maria's Story of Becoming Ill. 3. Diagnosis. 4. Telling Family and Friends. 5. Professionals Involved. 6. Treatment. 7. Life Now with MS. 8. Impact on Family Life - Positive and Negative. 9. Facts on MS. 10. Further Reading and Organisations.

Angela Amos has written this book from the heart. The straightforward language describes in an authentic way what Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is, and how it may impact different members of a family, including the person diagnosed with this degenerative disease. It is a poignant story that will speak to both parents and children about feelings that are sometimes difficult to acknowledge and explain and the delightful illustrations help with this too.
