Join Patti as she launches her debut memoir!
The virtual event on May 26 2020 - 6PM – 7PM EDT for a live reading, discussion, followed by a Q & A with Patti.
If not me, then who will save my child?
A mother must confront the unthinkable when her son is diagnosed with a rare medical condition.
Patti’s attention shifts fully away from her relationships and friendships as well as her own career and health. Her new normal sees her step into a dozen roles in addition to mom, including nurse, researcher, advocate, risk assessor, and promise maker, while she struggles and fails to rebuild her life as a freshly divorced woman. Adrift on the journey together, mother and son forge a connection like that of marooned shipmates.
In Loving Large, Patti’s voice exudes wit, wisdom, and humour as she discovers that resilience is learned and that the changes experienced in the aftermath of crisis can often create the greatest opportunities.
