We are excited to share that a new children's book centered around PWS is now available to pre-order! It Starts with Hello: Katie's Story about Prader-Willi Syndrome was written by Destiny Pacha, Ed.D., who has worked in the public education system for more than 20 years.
The story follows Katie and her companions as they navigate a day at school. Katie, who is living with Prader-Willi syndrome, embraces the challenges but never allows them to hinder her enjoyment and engagement with friends. Throughout the experience, you'll discover the unique aspects that make Katie distinct from others, while also recognizing shared qualities. Cultivating these connections fosters empathy and empowerment, and it all begins with a simple "Hello!"
"Your children and grandchildren inspire me each and every day, and it is because of them I continue to fight for a safe and secure educational environment for all children. By continuing to spread PWS Awareness, we can Empower Empathy," said Destiny.
