In my chair or yours?

At 19, a mysterious illness put Juliana Carvalho in a wheelchair. Her autobiographical account draws humour and hopes from difficult situations. Her story exposes the mixture of tragedy and comedy that characterize our lives. "To share our struggles and how we overcome them is an act of generosity. Trough my candid memoir, I hope to help and inspire others."
