“Cartwheels offers a glimpse into my world with all its pain, humour and quirky sensibilities.” – Amy Doolittle.

Published by Calgary’s Bhouse publications, Cartwheels includes more than twenty e-mail updates written by Amy to an ever growing list of on-line friends, before ending her own life, October 2009.

In Amy’s words, “I am blessed with a large extended family and a wide circle of friends scattered all over the world. When I was diagnosed with ALS I was peppered with questions. The most persistent one, ‘How are you,’ required a real answer, not just platitudes. “

“What began as a way of occasionally communicating my current condition and frame of mind gradually transformed into a regular platform to educate not only about ALS, which is not well known and frequently misunderstood, but about the challenges of being disabled and the burden of living with an incurable, progressive neurological disease. Cartwheels offers a glimpse into my world with all its pain, humour and quirky sensibilities.” - August, 2009
