Bedtime Stories for the Living

A regular dad. A rare brain disease. A chance to live forever.

"Bedtime Stories for the Living" is an episodic memoir in which Jay shows his children how to accept their limitations and find joy. The collection of tender, witty stories about fatherhood, persevering despite illness, and pursuing your dreams, demonstrates how love gives us the strength to face heartache with bravery, humour, and grace.

"It is a unique experience to read a book that speaks directly to your heart. If you live with a rare life altering disease, you spend a lot of time in your head. It's hard to put the thoughts into words.

In Bedtime Stories for the Living, Jay Armstrong accurately articulates the thoughts of any person living with a rare disease or anyone simply struggling to overcome their challenges.”

Kyle Bryant, spokesperson for the Friedreich's Ataxia Research Alliance and host of the Two Disabled Dudes podcast.
