About this title

Synopsis:

Is it possible to face unexpected challenges with strength, grace and personal power?

I Hate Muscular Dystrophy: Loving a Child with a Life-Altering Disease proves that it is possible.   

This authentic story speaks to the strength and resolve of a mother who believes that life is to be lived and celebrated, despite the realities of any real or perceived limitations. 

 A handbook for any person loving a child with special needs, this book teaches the importance of embracing the full spectrum of emotions - the love and the hate - that life presents when faced with unexpected challenges, particularly that of a chronic illness.

From the Back Cover:

"Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass, but about learning to dance in the rain." - Anonymous

Why Me?  

When her 5-year old son was first diagnosed with Duchene Muscular Dystrophy, the first question Star Bobatoon asked was "why me."   Several years later she discovered the answer:  As an attorney, speaker and trainer, she could - from a place of experience and compassion - support, empower and inspire other parents who have children with special needs.

I Hate Muscular Dystrophy: Loving a Child with a Life-Altering Disease
is a product of Star's answer.  It is an honest, though sometimes raw, story of how Muscular Dystrophy came into her life and how she has learned to deal with the impact of the disease on a day-to-day basis.  

This is a practical handbook for anyone who loves a child with special needs - teaching the importance of dancing in the rain as a was of coping with and managing their lives while manifesting joy and happiness.

Addresses the unspoken conversations:

*    Can I acknowledge hating the disease and still be a loving parent?
*    How can I embrace my child when I am so afraid of what will happen to him?
*    How Do I Find support when my family isn't there for me?
*    Do I really have the capacity as a singly parent to care for a child with special needs?
*    Will I ever be happy again?
