Cheri Tannenbaum was born in Alberta, Canada, and spent her teen years in the sixties as a fun-loving, gregarious flower child doing yoga. As she reached young adulthood, Cheri sought answers to the bigger questions of life. Delving into her Jewish roots, she found answers.
During a year spent at Stern College in New York immersing herself in Jewish learning, she began experiencing bizarre, debilitating symptoms, which progressed until she found herself unable to speak or to walk normally. Thus began her two-year journey to a proper diagnosis, ultimately identified as the movement disorder dystonia musculorum deformans.
Having no choice in the matter, Cheri went on with her life. She fell in love, married, obtained a bachelorís degree in psychology from UCLA and a masterís degree in human development from Pacific Oaks College, had three miracle children, pursued her eclectic artistic talents, learned to play the harp, became a grandmother, and along the way learned how to live, love, cry, and overcome with a serious disability. Today Cheri lives in Efrat with her husband Harvey. This is her first book
