Classification: Fiction

Synopsis: Hope is the only real antidote to any ailment or challenge . . . A journey marked by courage, conviction and determination that brings to life the exceptional efforts of one individual to emerge victorious against a debilitating disease. At thirty-three, Jamuna Rangachari seemed to have it all: a job she loved, a wonderful family and perfect health. Then she was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis – an often disabling autoimmune disorder for which there is no known cure. In painful detail Rangachari describes the gradual loss of vision, chronic fatigue and the progression of a balance disorder. In this engaging memoir, Rangachari chronicles and celebrates the story of her decade-long battle with an illness that can only be managed with treatment and counselling. With honesty and grace, Rangachari describes what it is like to live with a complicated, progressive disease. Her story goes a long way towards increasing awareness about alternative healing therapies and support for those living with MS.
