I am terminally ill with ALS/Lou Gehrig's disease. The disease has left me paralyzed from the nose down, unable to speak, eat or drink. I can't use my hands so the entire book was written on a specialized computer that uses my eyes to type. The disease has robbed me of every independence and mobility but it can never rob me of my love for God and my family! I hope you enjoy! Thanks for your support. Love, Roxanne Roundtree
Roxanne Roundtree, me, was diagnosed with ALS-Lou Gehrig's disease in 2008 at almost age 30. I am an active mother of 3 growing boys: Don (17), Brad (14), and Bryce (12). Before this disease took over, I was a home health nurse and traveled the Madisonville area caring for those who were not able to travel for health care. After my full time nursing job, I was also a full time mother. I was team mom, T-ball coach, home keeper, and cook. My boys are my everything. Although I am no longer able to move from the neck down or speak, I am still at every event that my boys are a part of. Football games, rodeos, jackpots, baseball, stock shows, etc.,. I do it all!
I wrote the book over a period of 2 years using only my eyes. I have a specialized computer that tracks my retina and is contoled by my eye movements. Wherever I look is where the cursor goes and I blink to select. This computer allows me to write, email, text, shop and most importantly, communicate. Its an amazing piece of technology that is essential for living with any quality of life, when you have ALS.
