One Thumb Up
Susan does not allow ALS to paralyze her goals. Her memoir will be published in March. It marks one more completed goal on her bucket list: "To make people laugh and cry and hug their children and joke with their friends and dwell in how wonderful it is to be alive."
Susan wrote about her Budapest travels to celebrate her 20th wedding anniversary with her husband and her adventure was published in the Palm Beach Post. The editors of HarperCollins Publishers saw her stories and offered Susan $2 million for her memoir, Until I Say Goodbye: My Year Living With Joy. Universal Studios kicked in another $2 million for the movie rights.
I give Susan two thumbs up for offering us a real-life example of what perseverance means. If you would like to read more about Susan's story, click here.
