Kickin' ALS: A Young Mother's Journey through Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis. Carrey Dewey and her husband, Eric, worked hard to build their dream life: a strong marriage, three incredible kids, and a beautiful home. It all came crashing down when Carrey was diagnosed at age 42 with ALS – a disease that is 100 percent fatal. Her doctor told her, "Get your paperwork in order and go make memories." But Carrey was determined to do more – to spend what life she had left advocating for ALS research and educating people about the disease.
The Boom Project started with a grumble. Two baby boomer writers, Kimberly Garts Crum and Bonnie Omer Johnson, were frustrated that literary journals, anthologies, and writing contests wanted writing that was "edgy, fresh, experimental, and modern." They put out a call for submissions across the Ohio River Valley for a new kind of collection — one that celebrates baby boomer experiences and perspectives. The result is an extraordinary anthology, filled with writing that is provocative, lush, witty, accessible, and universal.
