Format: Paperback
If you read Zoe's Win you will experience through the eyes of a child with ME just what it must be like to find your body will not do what you want it to.
It must be terrible to suffer from ME at any time in your life, but did you know that Myalgic Encephalomyelitis, to give it its full name, is the biggest cause of long-term absence through sickness from school? It must be a very heavy burden for a child to have this illness. And a great strain for any parent or teacher trying to help such a child.
ME is not a 'new' illness - epidemics have been recorded since 1934 - but the term ME has only been in use since 1956. The disease is also known as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. It is a real, organically-based, illness, and if you read Zoe's Win you will experience through the eyes of a child with ME just what it must be like to find your body will not do what you want it to.
Jane Colby, the author of Zoe's Win, has herself suffered from ME, and she has also co-authored the largest study of ME ever undertaken. The early pages tell the 'story' of Zoe and her illness, and what it was like when she tried to get back to normal too soon, and of the relapse when she got worse all over again.
The rest of the book is full of information about ME. and is full of valuable information for families, doctors and teachers who are involved with a child who has ME
