The 34 years old Rebecca Alexander is psychotherapist, spinning instructor and volunteer. She is almost blind and seriously hard of hearing because of Usher Syndrome. ‘Not fade away’ is a deeply touching exploration of the obstacles we all come across: physically, psychologically and philosophically. Rebecca describes her journey starting from a teenager who tries to hide her handicaps to a woman who can see the world as it is. Although Rebecca is living in an ever darkening world, this does not prevent her from living with joy and enthusiasm.
This book will be filmed featuring Emily Blunt in the leading part. The release date is not known yet.
