A Sister's Memoir

"Sixty Five Roses" is a memoir from author Heather Summerhayes Cariou, with a foreword written by singer Celine Dion. The book follows Cariou's family through their difficult journey dealing with a child with cystic fibrosis. Cariou's sister, Pam, was diagnosed at age four. Cystic fibrosis is a disease that affects the lungs and pancreas. Children affected by the disease were not expected to reach adulthood, but Pam was one of the first to surpass that expectation. She died at age 25, and Cariou vowed to share the family's experience with the disease with this memoir. The title "Sixty Five Roses" refers to the way Pam pronounced cystic fibrosis. It is a common way for children with cystic fibrosis to pronounce the disease.

The memoir is supplemented by a web site that features Heather Summerhayes Cariou's biography, blog, and words from her brother, Jeff, a cystic fibrosis survivor. The web site,, also features reviews, workshop testimonials, inspirational quotes, and resources for more information on the disease, as well as resources for people who have siblings with special needs. There is also exciting news that the book may be turned into a movie. Actress Eva Longoria's production company has optioned the film rights for the memoir.

Of the recommended books to read on the subject, "Sixty Five Roses" has been called "life changing". When looking for support, encouragement, or a better understanding of the disease, it can help to read books on others' experiences with cystic fibrosis. There are also a number of short stories online, as well as kids books and other online reading resources on the disease.
