Product Description This is a hysterical book about a woman who found out she had Multiple Sclerosis, began declining rapidly and decided to take charge of her own health. It is her funny take on how she got M.S., why she got M.S., and what she did about it. The medications she was given by her doctors were no longer working so in March of 2000 she volunteered for a stem cell transplant at Scripps in San Diego, CA. During this experiment she almost died. So she listened to comedy tapes. It was the laughter that kept her alive. So now that she has been given a second chance at life, she decided to become a comedian and make everybody laugh.MORE REVIEWS "Wonderful, amazing, heartbreaking, inspiring." ~ Britta Wilder, writer and painter "Inspiration for anyone diagnosed with a serious disease.
