Twenty years ago, we brought our son from Ireland to Gillette Children’s for surgery. Two years ago, I published my first book, Spastic Diplegia, with Gillette Press, and two months ago, I joined the Press as Program Director. I wrote Spastic Diplegia with experts at Gillette Children’s for families like my own—families who are trying to understand how a childhood-acquired condition develops over the lifespan, and the evidence-based, best-practice treatments. Families who have read the book describe it as their “roadmap.”

Spastic diplegia is just one of many lifelong conditions that medical professionals at Gillette treat. Gillette Press hopes to publish more “roadmaps” to enable families—parents of young children, and adolescents and adults with different lifelong disabilities —have an easier journey through life.

That goal reflects an old Irish proverb: Go n-éirí an bóthar leat (May your journey be successful).
