Notes From Connie


Notes from Connie, Spring 2013

CURE OM

I am putting together a new book – The Eyes Have It: Ocular Melanoma. It will be available by summer.

A fund raiser for an organization called CURE OM.

I say putting together a book, rather than writing a new book because I have invited people who have this disease to join me in writing their stories. Each story is a chapter of the book.

Many of the authors are noticing that writing is healing. Some of them plan to expand their stories into a book of their own.

The reason that I decided to organize this project is that I wanted to do something to raise money for eye cancer research.  Ocular Melanoma is an orphan disease; only seven people in a million get OM. For that reason there is a lack of money for research and without research there will not be a cure. There is a fifty percent mortality rate for OM patients. The disease is called “the beast” for a reason.  You may know, Dr. Oliver Sacks, the author of The Mind’s Eye and Resurrection. Dr. Sacks also has OM.

The Eyes Have It: Ocular Melanoma is filled with inspiring stories of courage and strength that will appeal to everyone who struggles with life.  Stay tuned for this new project.

Books by Connie Robillard and Marcel Duclos are available on Amazon.com
