Dear Chelsea,

First of all, thank you for your kind words of support. I think that you can. You can approach us with facts, but the key to writing about our experience is listening to what we’re saying. If you’re doing a story for a medical journal, do that. But if your goal is to produce an empathetic book, listen to us. Two-thirds of this book is perfect. The rest of it is based on medical facts, which causes the story to lose its luster.
