Since Mitt Romney’s bid for the U.S. presidency ended in 2012, Ann Romney has committed herself to causes that are close to her heart.

A year ago, Romney launched Ann Romney Center for Neurologic Diseases, which aims to find cures for five neurological conditions: multiple sclerosis, Alzheimer’s, Lou Gehrig’s (ALS), Parkinson’s and brain tumors. Today, Romney released a new book, “In This Together;” she is donating her proceeds to her organization at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston.

Romney’s new book shares the ups and downs in her life including her journey with multiple sclerosis, a neurologic disease affecting over 2.3 million people worldwide. In her book, Romney shares how her family and faith have transformed her life.

To promote her new book, Romney is holding a question and answer session at Brigham Young University on Thursday, Oct. 1 at 6 p.m. The Q & A session will be followed by a book signing.

“I’m thrilled to return to the BYU campus to share my new book with you while supporting research that has the potential to provide new hope for the more than 50 million people worldwide who suffer from multiple sclerosis, Alzheimer’s disease, ALS, Parkinson’s disease, and brain tumors,” Romney said. “With all the blessings I’ve had, MS has been my greatest teacher: It has taught me about faith, compassion, and serving others. In sharing my story, I want to give others hope as I’ve been given hope on this journey.”

The BYU Store and BYU Women’s Services and Resources sponsored the free event.
