About the Author

Shano Seamand is a young female living with a degenerative genetic disorder known as Friedreich’s Ataxia. She was raised between Iran and Kurdistan until the age of 12 where she moved to Australia. Seamand experienced a normal childhood and showed no signs of having a degenerative disorder. She lived a normal life, running around and helping out her family. Her life was changed forever when she started having various health issues. A diagnosis of Friedreich’s Ataxia at the age of 13 was made which threw her life upside down. Suddenly, she was a child with a serious disorder, which she was kept in the dark about. After hearing from multiple doctors that there was no hope, Seamand took her health into her own hands and began her journey to prove people wrong. She is no longer a child, but a strong woman determined to be independent and do things her own way. Readers may follow Seamand and her journey on her social media page @shanokurd’.
