Today is an exciting day - one that I have been working towards for the past 6 months.
My book, Alicia: My Battle with Wegener's Disease is now available for sale on the Amazon website (here is a link to the UK store).
This is what the book is about:
Alicia grew up to be a fit and healthy young woman who loved rocking out with her friends at gigs and spending time with her family. Her bright future was threatened when she became ill in 2005 and was diagnosed with Wegener's Granulomatosis. Alicia took a battery of drugs including chemotherapy medicines, and eventually turned to an experimental new drug in a bid to save her life.
This book fully explains the autoimmune disease Wegener's Granulomatosis (also known as Granulomatosis with Polyangiitis - GPA). I explain what the symptoms of the disease are, how it is diagnosed and how it is treated. It will be an invaluable resource to someone, or a family member or friend of someone, newly diagnosed with the disease.
Perhaps more importantly it is an inspirational story of how a young woman fought a chronic illness to rebuild her life.
Written with honesty, passion, and humour, this book is impossible to put down until you reach the last page.
The book costs around £6 in the UK and $9.99 in the US and is available worldwide.
