A Book and a Chat with "Heather Cariou"

Sometimes we have to face up to things, to do what has to be done. Listen to my Book and a Chat with Heather Cariou author of a wonderful book... "SIXTYFIVE ROSES: A Sister's Memoir"

During the show heather shares with us, some of her early life, and how her sister Pam was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis at the age of four and given only a short time to live.

She promised to die with her, but as Pam fought the limits of her prognosis, she instead taught me how to live. “Sixtyfive Roses” is the way Pam pronounced the disease that altered the lives of my siblings and parents, who in turn helped alter the community’s response to the disease by founding the Canadian Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. With the help of the Foundation, research, and new treatments, the fight to save Pam lasted for years, ending with her death at the age of 26.

As a last wish Pam asked Heather to give up her acting and go back to her first love of writing. It took Heather 20 years to learn and then to write this wonderful book about not just about her sister, but also about how we all can face life's challenges.

The time went by way to quickly for such a wonderful story, and we will I'm sure have a follow up show where we can learn more about this fascinating lady Heather Cariou and her book "SIXTYFIVE ROSES: A Sister's Memoir"

Why not stop for thirty minute and share this enjoyable and interesting chat
