Wilcox spoke to WALB-TV in Albany about her next challenge.

Wilcox wants the book to bring awareness to the situation she battles and let people know that living a normal life is possible.

"But I’m just looking to bring people together and let them know that they can also have a normal life too,” Wilcox said.

"Do I worry about it? No. I don’t because it’s out of my hands.”
