Alisa’s Journal - Braving ALS with Gratitude and Grace


Alisa Braverman has delighted in journaling and creating art her entire life. It wasn’t until she was diagnosed with ALS and started sharing her story online, however, that she was “discovered” by those closest to her and encouraged to publish her work. Alisa’s Journal: Braving ALS With Gratitude and Grace is a beautifully written, personal and universal story of love, life, humor, resistance and acceptance. Weaving together the author’s deep appreciation of the past and her intentional approach to living in the present, this journal is a gift not only to readers who have ALS or care about someone who does, but to anyone who deeply loves life on this planet.

Alisa has chosen to donate all proceeds from the sale of the book to CCALS.
