The first book in The Ribbon series, ‘David and Jenny: learning about Mitochondrial Disease’ is coming soon! In this book, David and Jenny have fun playing together. Jenny has Mitochondrial Disease, which means the way she eats and plays has changed. However, that does not stop Jenny and David from always having fun together!

This book does a wonderful job promoting inclusion and de-mystifying differences. Children and families will now have shared insight into the experience of others with disabilities and challenges. Importantly, Jenny’s story will emphasize the need for future bridges, bonds, and new relationships to be established amongst all families that otherwise wouldn’t have occurred.
