Founder of the Canadian Disabled Individuals Association, Ron Didur wrote Life Side Up: Encounter Disability Experience Life (Canadian Disabled Individuals Association, 2005). Partially based on the Didur's own experience with disability, the novel follows Jay, an active, healthy man who develops a debilitating disease. After losing the ability to pursue the activities he loves, Jay dies in a car accident and inexplicably awakens as someone else. Although he is able-bodied again, he finds he is missing one thing, Janet, the true love of his life.
