Why are you donating $1 from each print version sold to Arthritis Australia?

Simply, I have auto-immune arthritis, it’s a chronic, painful and disabling condition and I would like to contribute to future research for better treatment options. Importantly, if I didn’t have the pain from auto-immune arthritis I would never have bought a Tefal Cuisine Companion to make my everyday life easier and I would never had written this book. This book is my silver lining to living with this difficult condition. Find out more about my life with arthritis here.
