No one ever expected Alison Neuman to live past the age of three, let alone become a successful author and performer.

Now, an inspirational figure, Neuman has never let the painful disease she suffers with, dermatomyositis, dictate what she can and cannot achieve in her life.

An award-winning singer, Neuman has even done dance performances with the iDance and Cripsie Groups in her native Edmonton, Alberta, Canadian hometown. Along the way, she has become a college graduate, earning a degree in creative writing from MacEwen College, despite being told she'd never amount to anything.

Searching for Normal is her memoir and anthem to anyone who is suffering through sickness or obstacles that seem too impossible to overcome.

"You can and will achieve life's greatest dreams," Neuman says, "if you take it one step at a time; even if that step is while you navigate via a wheelchair."

Hi Alison, Thank you for welcoming me. Oddly enough, dermatomyocitis is one of the diseases the doctors think I have (in addition to several diagnosed conditions). They are having a substantial amount of trouble diagnosing one condition and doctors seem to fluctuate between MS, dermatomyocitis, and a profound, "We have no idea."

There are days I can barely use my hands at all. Writing is pretty much impossible on the best of days, and typing is a painful experience. DragonSpeak won't work for me due to my funky accent (and, I suspect, too much background noise).

I'm impressed my your story and it gives me hope. :)

Thank you, you too. :)
