Be prepared to cry, to cheer, to hope and to be amazed. As Alex teaches us: ‘Don’t forget life is a gift. You need to be thankful.’
Evergreen, Colorado (PRWEB) October 31, 2014
Alex Dixon, a happy and seemingly healthy 12 years old, unexpectedly has a stroke. Narrated by Tara Saltzman,“A Stroke of Luck” details the perilous and courageous journey Alex and her entire family take in the hope of her recovery.
Traditional treatments relying on physical therapy and medication fail to relieve the acute pain and muscle spasms. Drastic measures to relieve Alex are taken with a medical team surgically embedding wires deeply into her brain, which are then connected to a battery implanted in her chest. While relieving the pain and spasms this radical procedure had unexpected results.
In “A Stroke of Luck,” Juli and Jessica Dixon recount their family’s heartbreaking journey. As Eric A. Sheldon, M.D., Founder and Medical Director at Miami Research Associates notes, “teaching us the healing power of optimism, love, and determination”.
Considering “A Stroke of Love” was written by Alex’s mother Juli, a prolific author and professor of mathematics education at the University of Central Florida, her sister Jessica who was 11 years old when she began the project, and was narrated by Tara Saltzman, her aunt and narrator of several BFV titles, this audiobook is a true labor of love. Dr. Timothy D. Kanold Ph.D, former superintendent of Adlai E. Stevenson High School states, “Be prepared to cry, to cheer, to hope and to be amazed. As Alex teaches us: ‘Don’t forget life is a gift. You need to be thankful.’ “
“A Stroke of Luck,” will be released in CD and downloadable formats in mid-November. It may be purchased through the online BFV Audiobook Store or at other popular audiobook venues.
