Updated: Dec 29, 2020

Australian Shano Seamand offers readers an inspiring true story of hope and resilience in her autobiography titled “ Let Me Be Your Voice ” (published by Balboa Press AU).

This memoir shares the author’s experiences of being diagnosed with and living with Friedreich’s Ataxia (FA), a genetic condition that affects the nervous system and causes movement problems. Here, Seamand shares her story of discovering her disability and how she's thrived with the condition. After struggling for years to find the right support, Seamand is unwavering in her journey to get better and prove others wrong.

“Friedreich’s Ataxia is a rare disability with very little public awareness,” the author states. “I want to be that voice to bring awareness and motivate and inspire others.”

“Let Me Be Your Voice” aims to encourage those suffering from FA and other degenerative diseases to never give up hope. By sharing her story, she wishes to educate others about the disease and improve understanding of the condition.
