"This is a heartwarming and heartbreaking look at the life of a family after 12-year-old Allie faints on the soccer field. She denies that things must change. Mourns her healthy body.  Finally, Allie accepts that POTS has ended her life as a soccer player. Instead of giving up, she readjusted her compass to find her new path and passion in life. As a parent of a POTS patient, this book is a must-read for the entire family." -Cathy Pederson, PhD, Founder of Standing Up to POTS Compass Points the Way is a book about finding a way to navigate life with POTS. When Dysautonomia sets in, Allie fears her soccer career is over forever. She finds herself not only in a health crisis, but in an identity crisis as well. Without soccer, who is she? And if her body won’t cooperate, who can she become? When she meets Compass - an energetic, caring pup - at a pet adoption event, she learns to chart a new course. Join Allie on her long journey as she faces new physical struggles, the fear of the unknown, feelings of loss and hopelessness, and the hard process of rediscovery and rebuilding. This book is a hopeful, uplifting story about coping with life-changing medical issues and the people and animals that support patients of chronic, invisible disease.
