Why I wrote the book

I first got sick when I was 12. Got my first diagnosis at 13. And I thought: I feel really lonely in this. If I ever get out on the other side I’ll write a book about it to help others.

It took many years for the book to be written and it’s not specifically written for teenagers but it’s still the book I was supposed to write. Working through the book again for the translation is making me fall in love with it all over again.

I think one of the reasons why it took me so long to get this book finished was that it was supposed to be a broader book than it originally would have been. This is not a book for only sick people. It’s not for the broken. It’s a book that embraces the wholeness of everyone. It’s a book about hope. A book about life. A book about holistic healing.

I really hope that you’ll like it.

With all my love,

Helena
