Highland woman authors book about Lou Gerhig's Disease

A book signing for "Never Giving up, Never Giving In, A Family Fighting to the End — A Story of A.L.S." will be held from 1 to 3 p.m. at the Prestwick Village Golf Club, 136 Inverness at the corner of Milford Road and M-59 in Highland.
The book was written by Pamela (Gutherie) Woods of Highland.
Her book is about A.L.S. better known as Lou Gehrig's disease. Only 5 percent of A.L.S. patients will find this disease to be hereditary, unfortunately it runs in her family.
Writing this book has been a long journey of over three years of many bottled up emotions. Twenty-two years ago, this horrible disease robbed my Dad's life just when he reached his ultimate achievement with his career in Ford Motor Co.
The book started to evolve as it helped recall the family's tragedy and everything family members went through pulling together to take care of her father, who ended up on a ventilator two of the three years he was ill.
Her father was not able to move a single muscle in his body except his eyes and how that became a blessing to the family with the only means of communication with him. Never did he give up on life until it was time for him to go.
Then if that was not enough trauma to deal with, 10 years after his death, Woods lost four siblings in six years from A.L.S.
Profits from the book will go to A.L.S. research at .
The book can also be found at at their on line bookstore under autobiography, then search the title of book.
Woods has been married to Jim for 45 years and has two beautiful daughters, Kimberly and Kristina, whom are married to Michael Corey, and Brian Rand. Having five grandchildren, Josh Corey, Nick Corey, Noland Rand, Nathan Rand, and Sarah Rand has made their life complete.
