Inspiration For The Book
I was inspired to write this book from my own family experience of watching a loved one make this painful journey. Seeing this, led me to purposefully seek and support those on the fringes of society who struggle to fit in and often suffer the most. Be that with people of color, people with disabilities, women and/or LGBTQ, I believe their voices matter and deserve to heard. Their struggle should be understood and their contributions to society embraced.
We are stronger with diversity, not division.
