We are raising funds to print a set of children's books that tell the stories of challenges tackled by my father, Dr Dave (AKA David Stratton).

Dr Dave was diagnosed with MS in 1996 and is now living in a wheelchair, but still finds ways to live life to the fullest. So far there are 3 of these books but more are underway.

The stories which take the reader into the, often hidden, world of disability are in the form of children's books - a good way to tell stories with wonderful words and exquisite drawings, and for children a way to talk about disability in a positive light.

All proceeds, beyond the printing costs, will go towards the funding of MS research.

Risks and challenges

We have a publisher and distributor lined up, and the books are already completed, so the major challenge for us is getting enough money to print the books. Once they are printed (in China), they will be shipped to our distributor (in Australia) where they will then be sent to individual backers across the world. We do not envision any extra costs.
