laugh to death

A GREAT READ FOR THE ALS COMMUNITY

Laugh to Death: My Rx for Dying Well with ALS, is a collection of funny vignettes, chronicles a doctor's end-of-life journey with ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig's disease.  Welsh's unique outlook as a doctor-turned-patient, while at times serious and somber, is more often hilarious, if not irreverent.  Throughout-from the time of his self-diagnosis until his passing six years later-Martin F. Welsh, M.D., reveals how a terminally ill person's attitude can profoundly affect their quality of life.  Every patient, family member, caregiver, and health provider will benefit from his unique perspective of a doctor becoming a patient and ultimately a teacher.  Laugh to Death is a powerful tribute to the resiliency of the human spirit.  

The book is now available for purchase at laughtodeathmyrx.com

A very special thanks to Maureen Gill for her generous donation of books to the ALS community in Sacramento.  The reviews from pALS and cALS have been overwhelming and they are thankful for her generosity, and above everything else, they are grateful for the keen and witty insights of how to make a very difficult conversation in the ALS community a little easier.

PALS 4 Life
