Three Roses: Living with Muscular Dystrophy and Marrying the Ideal Woman introduces a man who knew from his early childhood that he would face life with the ever-present reality of muscular dystrophy. Despite the challenges this condition presented him, Michael S. Hudecki achieved both professional success and personal contentment.
His memoir relates the circumstances of his childhood, follows him through his academic years, and relates how, while pursuing his PhD in biology at the University of Buffalo, he came to know and to love the woman of his dreamsRajmohini Sebastian, a Fulbright scholar from India.
Despite three years of living apart following their graduation, they reunited at John F. Kennedy International Airport. Meeting her after she cleared customs checks, he presented her with a dozen red roses and three yellow roses, one for each year they spent apart. They married soon after that.
Three Roses opens a window into the life of someone who faces life with courage and faith, who makes a valued and lasting contribution to the worlds body of knowledge concerning muscular dystrophy, and recognizes and follows the beckoning of his heart.
