I grew up in Rhode Island, enjoying coffee milk and ignoring R's in words -- until I met Marybeth, a New Yorker who was studying to be a speech therapist at the University of Rhode Island. Marybeth first fixed my speech, and then we became best friends. We wrote "Arlene on the Scene" to help find a cure for Charcot-Marie-Tooth (CMT) disease, which affects both Marybeth and her daughter, Grace. Proceeds from this book will be donated to the Hereditary Neuropathy Foundation to fund CMT research, develop new treatments, and hopefully find a cure.
