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.
