Price: $10.00
Diagnosed with a disabling and fatal disease in 1996, the author was told she would be dead within three years. Twelve years on, she’s still very much alive and published this moving and often times, humourous tale of how she survived against a barrage of medical negativity and remained independent amidst a chorus of opposition. Disabled by disease, alone and away from family and cared for only by paid help and friends, she found her simpler life liberating and was more than content with her lot

    "Legless in the garden" Zana's courageous biography lays bare the traumas of living with MND, dependent on others for the simplest things. It shows how the human spirit can triumph, against all odds, and reminds us of all those who have succumbed to this most cruel disease, yet whose spirit lives on, as well as those who are currently battling with this 'mongrel disease' and overcoming seemingly insuperable setbacks.

    "Brava!" As a member of Club ALS for more than 11 years now, I find it fascinating to share experiences with others in the same leaky boat. Ever since reading Zana's thoughts in Cornflower Blues, I'd hoped and waited for more. Now my patience has been richly rewarded. Legless in the Garden deals mostly with Zana's ALS experience, but it also offers a candid look into other aspects of her life, including her relationships, her childhood in Malaysia, and the exotic (to this American) flora and fauna of her enchanting garden in suburban Sydney. I liked the book so much, I bought two copies: an electronic one for myself and a paperback for my ALSA chapter's library.
