    Matt Cavallo s overnight transformation from a fully functioning and healthy man, to someone who was numb from the waist down and unable to walk, eventually led to his Multiple Sclerosis diagnosis at age 28 The first thing he did was head to a bookstore to find help Lots of technical manuals and poetic, reflective pieces caught his eye, but no in the moment patient account of a diagnosis So he penned his own memoir, The Dog Story A Journey Into a New Life with Multiple Sclerosis About two hundred people are diagnosed with MS every week Every single one of these people feels terrified, overwhelmed and alone This book is intended to be a resource for the newly diagnosed so they realize they are in fact not even close to alone, and to teach families and friends what the disease does, Cavallo said Those not directly affected by MS will find it a story about love, relationships and finding hope in a bad situation Cavallo s tell all book captures his emotional pain when diagnosed with MS, and further chronicles his very intimate journey to regain his physical health and inner strength needed to fight the chronic illness Since his diagnosis, Cavallo has learned about x rays, CAT Scans, MRI s and spinal taps than he ever thought he d know But it s the personal relationships that taught him the most about overcoming trauma to lead an ordinary and miraculous life His dog Teddy became one of those life coaches He is a daily reminder that I need to get up and be active no matter what Even when I am tired or not feeling 100%, he is there to make sure that I start my day, Cavallo said He doesn t care about excuses or laziness, and he doesn t give up until I fulfill my daily promise of walking him As a result of his diagnosis, Cavallo has dedicated his life and career to healthcare and the fight against MS He delivers motivational patient experience lectures all over the country, as well as inspiring organizational presentations for companies using his story as a platform He recently finished his Master of Science in Health Care Informatics from Arizona State University, and works at a Neuroscience Clinic where he helped patients like himself every day before taking his current position training clinicians on how to use medical software to improve the patient experience The debut author is donating a portion of the proceeds from his book to support MS research and charities MS is a chronic illness with no cure, but being diagnosed with it is not a reason to stop living Perhaps my biggest hope is that people will see me succeed despite my condition, Cavallo said Then they will know that they, too, can succeed Originally from the Boston suburbs, Matt currently works and lives with his wife and two sons in Chandler, Arizona.

I have a close family member who is in the initial stages of diagnosis and treatment. When I began to read this book I sat back and took pause.

I really think a great book to buy for friends, family, caretakers an [...]
