Listen up ladies and gents
Basically my best friend’s mum has written a book.
Not just any book, a self-help book for parents of disabled kids. She describes it as the book she needed when her three children were first diagnosed and she didn’t know where to turn.
Yvonne is truly the loveliest, most kick-ass woman i have ever met and she has been through hell and back; living with stage IV breast cancer, facing discrimination, bringing up her kids beautifully and always with a smile on her face.
Not only this, but now she’s gone and written a bloody book!
She shows us that even when things are looking really bad and the people that are supposed to help you do the opposite, you can get through it with skills and strength you didn’t know you had.
Written as a hands-on practical manual for parents of children with disabilities, this book is also an essential guide for all those who work with these children and their families.
It will make you laugh and cry, and it will also have you steaming with anger at the inequalities and struggles that the most vulnerable families in our society face on a daily basis.
The book will rattle cages of the great and the good, particularly those who oversee our health, education and social services. For them it will be an uncomfortable and difficult read which will spark both controversy and debate.
It’s also the story of an exceptional mother and her three children, an inspirational story of love, hope and survival and always warmly wrapped in humour.
As Rosa Monckton writes in the Foreword, “This is a story of our time”.
