Sarah has a problem. Every year she and her father march in the Fourth of July Parade. This year is different. Sarah's daddy is sick and can no longer walk. To make matters worse, he relies on a wheelchair, an UGLY wheelchair. Sarah has to decide whether she will listen to her pride and break a father-daughter tradition or listen to her heart and embrace a new one. Through her compassion, Sarah learns not only to accept her father's new wheelchair, but his disability as well. The Stars That Shine is a lovely tribute to all children who live with a disabled or terminally ill parent. Enclosed are resources for ALS patients, their caregivers and children. Although this story is about ALS, the message resonates with all families who live with similar challenges.
