Summer Born: A Life With Cerebellar Ataxia
Mandy Wheeler had been living a teenage life filled with school, friends, and her first love. Her increasing poor coordination causes concern among family and friends so she goes to see a neurologist. She learns that she has a progressive neurological disorder called Cerebellar Ataxia: a progressive degeneration of the cerebellum which impairs coordination. The news leaves her frustrated and frightened, but the support of friends, family, and The National Ataxia Foundation eases her anxiety. She journeys through life, love, and a dream on her way toward the acceptance of her disability.
Over 150,000 people in the United States have an ataxic disorder. This novel sheds light on a little known debilitating condition.
