"It was amazing, this outpouring from the community to support Evan. People waited outside in a line that stretched 100 yards at points in the heat with nothing but smiles and great energy." -- Bob Kohm, family friend
Our young hero, Evan Moss is a 7-year-old boy who has Tuberous Sclerosis and Epilepsy. "My Seizure Dog," the book he has written and illustrated in his innocent, but persistent effort to acquire this companion dog motivated by his personal experience of suffering. The young courageous Evan, tells the sweet sour story of what he looks forward to in a caring friendship with his new pet sharing his suffering. Evan's family has shown wisdom to support his book project, to seek such effective healing means to help Evan focus on alleviating his own pain. A seizure can erupt suddenly, triggered by an abnormal neurological activity, like an electrical storm in the brain. What could be aggravating for a young kid is that seizures are always accompanied by loss of consciousness, that may last for several minutes, and in the worst cases, hours. In dogs, as in humans, seizures can be similar in many ways and may be harsh for the dog, while the pets owner is left in daunting dismay.
His story and drawings will surely inspire the readers who will be enthusiastic not only to support Evan but also to join his noble and earnest attempt to acquire and befreind a caring seizure dog. The new family member will keep Evan in caring 'paws', and he may grow up to be a great veterinarian. People drove from as far as New Jersey to Alexandria, Virginia Sunday to meet young Evan Moss and buy his book. It was reported that Some people even brought their seizure dogs, which cheered Evan up, his mother Lisa Moss said.Read more ›
I give a lot of credit to Evan, for wanting to contribute his talents to make his dream come true, and to his parents, for helping him to try and find an efficient and effective way to do so.
I cam across the story of this book in Publishers' Weekly's Twitter Feed last week; they linked to an article in the Washington Post about a book signing Evan was doing last Sunday.[ ... ]
I promptly retweeted and posted to my FB page, and also emailed the story to my address list. I would really like to see Evan get his dog; it's important to get the word out about this amazing young man and his family.
Good work on the book, Evan; I hope that you write many more as you grow older. Most important, I hope you get your dog, really really soon.
As for me, I'm contributing my copy to my local library so that other kids can learn not only about seizure dogs, but how a kid just like them can solve a really big problem with creativity and hard work.
Please buy it and share it with children. It is easy for them to read and understand.
Great lesson in life!
