Take Me Home From The Oscars: Arthritis, Television, Fashion and Me is Christine Schwab’s memoir of persistence and survival. For the first time, Christine tells the story of an insecure girl living in foster homes who grew up to live an amazing life as a television fashion, lifestyle and beauty reporter while secretly suffering from RA. She takes us behind the glamour and cameras of Hollywood as well as the doors of experimental medicine where she spent 19 years going through drug trials and treatment while hiding her devastating illness. This is the book Christine wrote before she turned a page in her life to become the fierce advocate fighting for children and teens with JA that she is today.
