A Will to Win : A remarkable story of courage and determination
At the age of 18, Alice Peterson was doing great. She was one of the top seeded players of British tennis, and was about to take up a tennis scholarship in the US. But overnight her happy, secure world was thrown into disarray when she was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis. By the end of the year Alice was bed-ridden and praying for relief from the all-consuming pain of her disease. Alice tells of her tennis mad childhood and her battle with arthritis; of the competitive junior tennis circuit and of learning to live with a degenerative disease.
