Life’s Good by Hazel Carter

When Hazel’s husband, Alan, was diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), the most common form of motor neurone disease (MND), it was devastating, but the disease did not stop the couple in their tracks.

A prognosis of six months to two years to live and no hope of a cure spurred them on to take a holiday of a lifetime overseas, have four UK breaks, and enjoy countless social events, while Alan became gradually locked into a failing body, and dependent on a ventilator to breathe.

In this book, Hazel describes the ups and downs of their adventures, the challenges of providing care in their home and how their deep love for each other kept them strong. She also shares her private thoughts and feelings, and tips she hopes readers will find useful.
