Kashmir: A Memoir
Kashmir: A Memoir by Kashmir Neumann is a moving account of perseverance and strength in the face of unimaginable hardship. Kashmir left Vietnam at the age of 24 on a one-way ticket to see the world and live in Hanoi, Vietnam.
She quickly adjusted to her new surroundings, living with expats and teaching English classes while falling in love with Brad, her partner from South Africa. When she started getting crippling migraines, she had no idea that this journey would take an unexpected turn.
Kashmir decided it was time to seek medical attention back home after nine months of unbearable pain. It was then that she was diagnosed with an AVM — An arteriovenous mutation – a bunch of veins on her occipital curve prepared to burst at any moment. Her book is a collection of journal entries that recount her struggle for both her physical and mental well-being.
Kashmir explained that her story is about surviving and coming back from the brink of death, finding joy in the midst of sorrow, and accepting life no matter what. She wants the people who read her story to understand that they are not alone and that our bodies are capable of so much more than we think they are. Kashmir hopes that through her writing, others who are going through similar difficulties will never give up hope and will find the strength within themselves to fight for their lives.
Through Kashmir: A Memoir, readers will learn how Kashmir handled this trying time in her life with grace and perseverance as she endured surgery after surgery to live. Readers will be moved by this powerful story of courage and strength, which will stay with them long after they finish reading it! It takes readers from exploring the depths of despair to finding joy in the midst of it!
The goal of the book is to raise awareness about AVM, which affects over 300,000 Americans annually. Neumann is donating a portion of the proceeds from each book sale to the Joe Neikro Foundation in honor of Brain Awareness Week, which runs from March 13 to 18 to promote awareness of and education about brain aneurysms and AVMs.
