"It's Chyckxn!"

The Unculinary Way  I Made Life Palatable 

    A Memoir 

This memoir provides a raw, candidly detailed journey of a young woman’s heart wrenching  struggle with the 50% chance of potentially passing on a congenital facial difference to her children. The question that halts her decision every time is not what society’s judgments will be—she has contended with that for a long time. It is the question: “Will my children resent me when they realize I made a conscious decision to pass on my unknown gene for Treacher Collins Syndrome?” In her quest for the answer, she revisits her childhood photo’s and diaries only to emerge from the substantial journey with a greater acceptance of her own uniqueness.
