Thirty-four-year-old Rebecca Alexander is a psychotherapist, a spin instructor, a volunteer, and an athlete. She is also almost completely blind, with significantly deteriorated hearing. Not Fade Away is a deeply moving exploration of the obstacles we all face-physical, psychological, and philosophical. Rebecca's story is an exquisite reminder to live each day to its fullest.
In Not Fade Away, Rebecca charts her journey from a teenager who tried to hide her disabilities to a woman who is able to face the world exactly as she is. Even though Rebecca inhabits a gradually darkening world, she refuses to let that stop her from living life with joy and enthusiasm.

"Narrator Tavia Gilbert expresses the frustration and courage shared in Rebecca AlexanderÕs motivational memoir. Alexander recounts the story of her arduous journey, which started with symptoms of diminished sight and hearing and eventually led to being diagnosed with Usher syndrome, which would take her sight completely as a young adult. GilbertÕs voice captures AlexanderÕs determination to persevere in her own life and to inspire listeners with the minor and major challenges she overcomes daily. By changing her tone to complement each emotional moment, Gilbert imbues this inspirational story with the same drive its author demonstrates as she rises to every challenge and cherishes every day as a gift in which she can use her story to help others.
