A Book Can Help End Diabetes

First Sessions Wellness Warrior Books Sent To The Reservation!

Diabetes is the #1 killer in the American Indian population and one of the easiest diseases to cure. In New Mexico, there is a program called the Wellness Warrior Project which is working to eradicate diabetes by teaching nutrition, healthy cooking, mindfulness, and many more skills to Native Americans. After reading my book, Wellness Warrior: Fighting for Life in Fabulous Shoes, the director of the program asked to use it in her program. The problem is, they don’t have the funds to buy a copy of the book for each participant. There are hard costs to printing and shipping the book. The total is about $17 per book. It’s an amazing coincidence (although I don't believe in those) that my book and the program share a name and that makes me even more passionate about helping the Wellness Warriors get their bodies back to balance so they can live a long, healthy, empowered life. My goal is to raise enough funds so every person in the program gets their own copy for a year. All additional contributions will go towards books for the following year. $17 covers one book that will go directly to a Warrior who is battling diabetes. $85 covers 5 books $170 covers 10 books $459 covers enough for everyone in the program for one session and $1,836 is enough for the first year.
