My new book titled Align, Lengthen & Strengthen Your Resilience While Living with ALS is now published and available as a FREE download from my blog site.

Dagmar Munn

If you or someone you know has been diagnosed with ALS, or are facing any other kind of life-threatening illness — I wrote this book for you! I wrote the book for anyone facing a life-threatening illness, as well as for their caregivers, family and friends. Through numerous personal and humorous anecdotes, as well as by drawing on my background in wellness, I share practical advice for creating a resilient life.

My book is absolutely FREE. I will not ask you for your email or try to sell you something later on. This is my gift to the ALS community. Please share it with others!

Enjoy :-)

One reader's comment:

"I wish I had a resource like this when I was first diagnosed. It was the worst day of my life when I found out my diagnosis. It was so difficult to get up and start living again. I had so many of the same experiences and felt so along. The book is so positive. I love the concept of having to 'Show up' ... it would be so easy for someone with ALS to shut down and stop enjoying life. I also appreciated how she described how she dumped her group of whiners, and the importance of surrounding yourself with positive people ... I was surprised by the humor as well. I read this while I was on a flight and I realized that everyone was staring at me whenever I laughed out loud!" — Warner Smith, former University of Arizona and NFL player
