Chiari

Paul Anthony, an author I know,  has put this book together to help raise funds towards research into a medical condition that I had never heard about until recently – Chiari Malformation.

Available on Amazon UK  Amazon US Amazon Australia Amazon Canada and many other Amazon sites.

Here’s a description of the book from Paul Anthony;

‘This is an anthology of short stories by 18 authors from across the globe – the UK, the USA, Canada, and Europe – The tales they tell are both non fiction and fiction. Many are based on real life experiences. Others are based on vision and a wondrous source of imagination that these very special authors bring to their readers. Some of the stories they tell will make you cry, others will make you laugh. But some of their writing will actually terrify you when you realise that some of the accounts they recall are actually true stories from real events in their lives. Indeed, there’s something for everyone here: tales of love and war, of honour and disobedience, of hate and humour, of desire and desperation. They have produced a roller coaster of emotion on their journey to complete this anthology. It’s a book to savour and enjoy, page by page. Above all, this anthology contains the true story of a young boy who suffers from Chiari Malformation – a condition for which there is currently no known cure.’

    Sounds like it was quite the project. A worthy one too. Chiari sound like an awful condition.

    • Thanks Eric, from what I’ve been told and read, it can be mild in some cases but terrible in others. A young relative of Paul’s has been finally diagnosed after years of suffering. Some young people with symptoms are passed off as troublesome teenagers.

    Chiari can’t be cured per se, but in some cases there is brain surgery that can significantly help it. My mother had this and I was treated for it, as well. It’s good that the word is being spread about it!
