Ravyn’s Doll, How do you explain Fibromyalgia to Your Child? is a creation from paraprofessional, chronic pain patient and advocate Melissa Swanson.
In the book, Ravyn teaches the class that even though her mom looks healthy, she’s not! Ravyn’s mom suffers from fibromyalgia and its evil sidekicks. Ravyn’s Doll is a simple and effective way to explain fibromyalgia to your child. It helps show that not all illnesses are visible and explains how living with an invisible illness affects families’ daily lives.
Melissa has participated in school readings in Wisconsin, California and Chicago. She has inspired a team of other fibromyalgia moms and teachers to do the same. Ravyn’s Doll will be in classrooms in Los Angeles, Charleston, Tucson, San Diego and many more in 2018!
