ABOUT THE AUTHOR
At the age of 12, I was diagnosed with limb-girdle muscular dystrophy. Limb-girdle muscular dystrophy encompasses a large number of rare disorders. Currently, there is no cure and the disease inevitably worsens over time. The term "limb-girdle" is used to describe these disorders because the muscles most severely affected are generally those of the hips and shoulders—the limb girdle muscles.
Living with muscular dystrophy has certainly not been an easy road, yet along the way I have experienced many blessings that I probably would not have, if my life had been any different. I refuse to let the extreme limitations that restrict me physically, define who I am.
I have always enjoyed reading to my children and now my grandchildren. I was encouraged to write a series of children's books. Technology has played a huge role in my new adventure, because of my limited mobility, I am unable to write using a keyboard, I use voice activated software and have dictated each book that I have written using a computer. Each story line is intended to encourage children to overcome obstacles. It is my hope that every child who reads my books will be inspired to become the best that they can be, regardless of their life challenges. The sales of each of my books goes directly back to Lori's Voice organization.
My love of children and reading, ignited a spark and together with a team of hard working, dedicated friends, we formed the nonprofit organization, Lori's Voice. My goal is to enrich the lives of challenged children and make their lives a little easier by providing them with special medical equipment, summer camp scholarships, voice activated software, braces, basically things that insurance would typically not cover.
