You may remember the Kickstarter I spotlighted here a couple weeks back. Well, it’s going forward and Jenni needs some help! If you or someone you know might be interested in participating then please pass along the link and the invitation. :}
As I work on finishing my first draft, I keep running into the same issues, chapter after chapter: Not enough caregiver perspectives.
Caregivers include anyone who cares for a ChronicBabe: Spouses, partners, girlfriends, boyfriends, lovers, parents, children, grandparents, friends, co-workers, neighbors and many more.
These people experience the impacts and consequences of chronic illness alongside us ChronicBabes, and in my experience, their voices aren’t heard nearly enough. So I’ve decided to include some perspectives from caregivers, sprinkled throughout the book.
If you’re someone who loves a ChronicBabe, please consider participating. I’m gathering volunteers here, with a very simple form (it takes 2-3 minutes to complete). I hope to use folks’ full names, but if you prefer more anonymity, I can use just a first name.
If you’re a ChronicBabe yourself and know someone who might be interested, send them a link to this update — and a sentence or two about why it’s important that their voice be heard. Don’t fill out the form on their behalf.
Questions? Concerns? Leave a comment and I’ll get back to you ASAP, or shoot me an email.
I’m excited to include such a diversity of perspectives in my upcoming book, and thankful to have such a supportive community.
