FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
January 9, 2005
Millions of people have epilepsy or experience Seizures. Are you one of them? Are you trying to figure out how to explain to your child or a child in your family about your disorder, so they will understand what epilepsy is and what they can do to help you when you are experiencing a seizure?
Many parents read this book to their children. I received a lot of positive feedback. This book teaches young children about epilepsy. It helps children understand what a seizure is and not to get scared if they see someone having a seizure.
It helps educate children and help them understand what they can do if a friend or love one is having a seizure. There are so many myths that still roam through our society about epilepsy. "My Mommy Has Epilepsy" gives children and their family truth; medical facts explained in simplistic terminology so there is a clear understanding about epilepsy.
I am a writer and I have published a book called “Epilepsy You’re Not Alone.” Epilepsy You’re Not Alone is an inspirational self- help book that teaches people with epilepsy how to live a healthy and productive life. The book shares encouraging stories and gives readers a workable program for coping with their disorder enabling readers to overcome their disorder and get on with their lives.
I have a third book coming out this fall called “Epilepsy and Pregnancy: What Every Women Should Know”, Co-authored by Dr. Blanca Vasques. Through my efforts, I have been able to show other women that it is not impossible to become a mother. I have given women and couples hope and a new look on life. Epilepsy is just a disorder. Your life does not end because you have epilepsy.
I have a forth book coming out in the fall of 2005, called “Eternal Love: Romantic Poetry That Comes Straight from the Heart”. I have a fifth book coming out called, “Faith, Courage, Wisdom Strength and Hope: Inspirational Poetry that comes from the Heart”.
Accomplishments: I am an H.O.P.E. Mentor, for the Epilepsy Foundation. I speak at different events for schools, organizations, political events and anywhere my help is needed to educate people about epilepsy. I have recently been on four talk shows. The interviews focused on the importance of understanding what epilepsy is, how to help someone having a seizure and giving people with epilepsy encouragement and hope for the future.
I have been on radio stations discussing epilepsy and I have recently appeared in many newspapers all over New Jersey such as, The Leader, Belleville Post and the Star Ledger. On June 26, 2002, I was honored an award by the Epilepsy Foundation of New Jersey for Outstanding Volunteer Award and I spoke in Washington in front of congress.
