South Carolina--June 2014 Diann Shaddox Foundation
Diann Shaddox Foundation formed to raise Vital Funds & Awareness for over 10 million Americans
Diann Shaddox Foundation, a non for profit organization, 501c(3), is committed to help people struggling in today’s world with neurological conditions. About 10 million Americans have Essential Tremor. That's about 5% of all people in the United States. For comparison sake, 7.8% of the population have some type of diabetes. Most people though haven’t heard about Essential Tremor and DSF is adamant to bring attention to the world.
‘A Faded Cottage’: Novel by Diann Shaddox founder of DSF is to become a long-term awareness/fundraising vehicle. ‘A Faded Cottage’ fuses fact with fiction to depict a compelling love story, based around an artist suffering from Essential Tremor. People love a bold story and ‘A Faded Cottage’ has it all, combined with a real-life awakening to the detriment ET inflicts on its victims. With Shaddox herself also a victim of the neurological disorder, the novel ‘A Faded Cottage’ imparts a powerful message, while acting as a real-life vehicle for vital ET awareness.
While the protagonist in Diann Shaddox’s novel may appear to have a unique story, his battle with Essential Tremor (causing rhythmic trembling of the hands, head, voice, legs, or trunk) is shared with one in sixty Americans. The book is a stark reminder of the prevalence of this often ignored disorder.
Compared to other conditions, little is known about Essential Tremor and the treatment options are limited. Essential Tremor is not confined to the elderly. Children and middle-aged people can also have it. In fact, new-borns have been diagnosed with the condition. With awareness, people with Essential Tremor can come out of hiding and live normal lives.
A portion of all electronic, paperback and hardback books sold will be donated to Diann Shaddox Foundation, leading the funding of research into Essential Tremor treatments and a cure.
Diann Shaddox Foundation was formed to support and add additional resources to help find the cause and cure for all movement disorders. DSF is dedicated to inspire, educate, enlighten, and increase awareness to the world about people living every day with neurological conditions such as Essential Tremor. DSF funds will be used for research to help find the cause and a cure for Essential Tremor.
DSF is bringing light to the darkened world of Essential Tremor.
