Carla Valentino suffers from RSD/CRPS (Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy/ Chronic Regional Pain Syndrome), but that doesn’t define her. Instead, if you were to ask Carla what her proudest label is, she’d say “mom”.
In an effort to explain her condition to her own daughter, Valentino embarked on a journey to write a book specifically for children, on how to understand and cope with illness. When Can We Run, Dance, and Play Again is a colorful, touching and informative children’s story for kids of parents who are suffering from illness.
Valentino aims at presenting children with an illustration on how families deal with health issues, how to strengthen the family bond and how to use their imaginations.

I, for one, can't wait to read it myself! Jennifer
