Like most of his friends and classmates, 12 year old Joseph from St. Neots loves books and computer games. With the help of Starlight and Live It Publishing, Joseph will have his book, The World, published – a particularly remarkable feat given that Joseph has spent his whole life fighting a serious and extremely rare heart condition.
Joseph suffers from Arterial Tortuosity Syndrome (ATS), a newly discovered genetic syndrome. Joseph is the only person in the UK with this condition and it means that he has to spend a great deal of time in hospital, which is very challenging. On Monday, 17 June Starlight will officially grant his wish to have his book published!
Joseph has generously offered to donate 10% of author royalties from the sales of The World to Starlight. To purchase Joseph’s book and help raise funds for Starlight click, here.
