♥ Book Title : Someone I Love Has ALS
☯ Full Synopsis : "Kevin and Jodi O'Donnell, were a young New Jersey couple busy raising a toddler and making plans for their future when they received life-altering news in 1995 that changed everything as they knew it. Kevin was only 30 years old when he was told that his health problems were the result of a rare, terminal disease called ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis), or Lou Gehrig's disease. Kevin and Jodi had not heard of ALS until then and had no idea how those three letters would challenge everything they thought to be certain. After more than 20 years of working with ALS families, Jodi realized that more information and better resources could be available to help families who are coming to grips with the challenges of the disease and the caregiving responsibilities that are involved. In the Introduction to "Someone I Love Has ALS: A Family Caregiver's Guide," Jodi recounts the journey she took as a caregiver, advocate and writer and embraces and shares the lessons learned throughout the pages of this wonderful guide, "This guide was created by a variety of caregivers and professionals who have years of experience with various aspects of ALS. It was written by volunteers and experts who care about ALS and your journey. It is the resource that I wish we had received along with the shocking diagnosis." Although Kevin died of ALS in 2001 at the age 35, the disease never won the battle. ALS only strengthened Kevin and Jodi's love for God and each other and it created an even bigger purpose and plan: the creation of Hope Loves Company(r), the only non-profit whose mission is to support the children and grandchildren caregivers of PALS (people with ALS)."Article| Jodi O'Donnell-Ames| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis
☯ Full Synopsis : "Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis: A Patient Care Guide for Clinicians is intended as a practical reference for clinicians caring for ALS patients, and will bring together the collective wisdom of those at the forefront of patient-oriented research and practice. This will be an official project of the ALS Research Group (founded by Dr. Mitsumoto and currently headed by Dr. Bedlack), and provides both an evidence-based and experience-based guide to multidisciplinary ALS care. The book will begin with a brief review of current concepts of ALS including diagnostic criteria, genetic and sporadic subtypes, epidemiology, co-morbidities and prognosis. Individual chapters then tackle the gamut of specific issues that arise in caring for people with ALS, from breaking the news all the way through end-of-life care and bereavement. Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis: A Patient Care Guide for Clinicians is divided by disciplines, mirroring the way large multi-disciplinary ALS clinics operate and includes pertinent material for each member of the care team. Each section will has one primary author from that discipline (an expert ALSRG member), who will review the specific issues they have seen arise and review the evidence-based options presented for each issue. Each section will also has a group of secondary authors, other experts from the same discipline who offer counterpoints or other ideas about how to handle clinical problems (i.e. use of lipids and statins, screening for driving, etc.)—essentially what has or hasn't worked for them—thus capturing the variety of opinions across experts in the field and providing real-world care information that isn't available or documented anywhere else."Article| Richard S.

♥ Book Title : Navigating Life with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis
☯ Full Synopsis : "Navigating Life with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis provides accessible, comprehensive, and up-to-date information about the challenges patients, family members, and caregivers face when confronted by ALS, a disease that affects approximately 5,600 Americans every year, with as many as 30,000 people managing the disease at any given time. ALS is a difficult disease for the patient and is also challenging for the caregiver and family as there are many questions, issues relating to care, and problems to manage. This guide covers all aspects of managing ALS, from the onset of symptoms, diagnosis, treatments, and coping strategies, to the use of home health care or hospice, and new research in the field. The book also sheds lights on difficult topics, such as end-of-life care and managing legal affairs. Navigating Life with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis is unique because it covers two perspectives: one author is a neurologist with 30 years of experience treating ALS patients, and the other author experienced first-hand the issues in providing care for a parent with ALS. Formatted in a question-and-answer style, peppered throughout with patient stories, and with sections devoted to family members and caregivers, this compassionate resource provides guidance to those seeking to understand how to live with this disease."Article| Mark B.

♥ Book Title : Al's Well
☯ Full Synopsis : "The mid-life crisis becomes the lifetime’s crisis. The fling becomes the affair , the affair becomes the love affair , the love affair becomes the murder. Set within the châteaux and vineyards of Southern France, ‘Al’s Well’ is a story of many kinds of love: of sexual passion and emotional desperation; of cravings for romance and danger and fulfilment; of lusts simultaneously for the intimate and the superficial; of proscribed love buttressing married love. At one level, ‘Al’s Well’ is the tale of the adulterous affair between the sassy American, Trove, and the geeky Englishman, Mike. At another, it chronicles the consequent deepening of the relationship of Trove with her sculptor husband, Al. At all levels, ‘Al’s Well’ is love under the microscope – but a microscope of lenses either chortling with laughter or crumpled in tears , or both. Gregory Dark already enjoys a reputation for prose of enormous wit, charm and beauty. These qualities are again in abundance in this, his first book of which love is the central theme."Article| Gregory Dark| Statement ..."
