Sarah’s visit is an award from the CMTA to the Easton group for raising in excess of $10,000 in 2016 for CMT research. Sarah is the author of two helpful books: Everyone Has Something, Together We Can and Does a Bully Have Something?  Sarah Kesty Everyone Has Something… celebrates the journey we all take when faced with a struggle. She believes that the frustration or sadness one may feel can be replaced with strength and compassion as one grows through the difficulty.  Her stories illustrate how important it is for one to be compassionate when considering what others are going through. She also believes that bullying can be eradicated by empathy.

Kesty is a member of CARS+, the organization for special educators, CHADD (Children and Adults with ADHD), and a member of the CMT Advisory Board. Her “something” is CMT and that has inspired her to reach out to others. We also look forward to being joined by county and state representatives, presenting proclamations commemorating September as CMT Awareness Month in Maryland and Talbot County. Join us for a fascinating morning filled with understanding, compassion and celebration.  For more information please call Missy Warfield, group leader, at 410-820-0576.
