|Melynda Fleury, blogger extraordinaire and debut author of Just Nonsense|
This rings no truer than for Melynda and three of her wonderfully supportive friends who, in her time of need, have rallied together to really make a difference.
Melynda is diabetic and is sadly rapidly losing the last remaining sightedness in her one no longer good eye. She has been completely blind in the other eye for some time already. A remarkable young woman, Melynda remains positive and cheerful regardless of the many obstacles life throws in her way, yet in the last couple of years she has faced more than most. Her mounting medical costs have been crippling and despite everything she and her husband have done to alleviate their situation, few choices remained to them. They recently had to sell their home and move into a smaller rental home to cut escalating costs to a minimum. Ironically, until Melynda was declared legally blind in both eyes, the American Health Care System would not support her.
This is where her friends Elisa, Fran (aka fishducky) and Joshua boldly stepped up to the challenge in their selfless quest to do something positively punchy to help her. They have taken the would-be book of short stories and blog posts that Melynda had haphazardly cobbled together prior to losing her sight and have spent countless hours editing and re-editing them to get ready for publication. In addition, Elisa applied her very creative mind to designing an unusually eye-catching book cover and, voila! They have succeeded in getting Melynda's first book, Just Nonsense published! This was done very much in secret, all behind the scenes, in the dead of night, to keep her in the dark (excuse the pun) until today...1st March 2012!
Melynda's book is officially being launched for sale TODAY! All proceeds will go towards funding her special needs. Isn't that exciting? Don't you just love a feel good story? You do? Oh, good! Because...

And, if you don't believe me, who better than Elisa and Fran to convince you of Melynda's exceptional skill as a story teller?
