Mission Statement: What about Daisy? is a for profit enterprise whose purpose is to inform, entertain, and promote understanding of the challenges facing humans and animals with special needs. Working through TV, radio, internet, books, and live events, What about Daisy? creator, Maryam Faresh, has inspired thousands with Daisy's story and message that "everyone deserves to be loved and accepted."
Maryam, along with her partner Bruce Meade, adopted Daisy when she was three months old. With no previous experience at training a dog born deafblind and with very few resources available on the subject, they worked for months trying to gain Daisy’s trust and love. After one particularly discouraging and exhausting session with Daisy, Maryam had a very vivid dream. The next morning she woke up and quickly began to write it down. Two hours later her first children's book, What about Daisy? was born.
It was at that moment Maryam realized that Daisy had opened up her heart in a most unexpected way. Maryam had been so busy feeling like a bad mother that she had almost missed the gift right in front of her: the gift of Daisy, just as she was. Daisy hadn't just changed their lives, she had changed their destiny.
Since writing the first What about Daisy? book, Maryam has written a second children's book, Road to Rescue Ranch, a prequel to What about Daisy?; and, "Daisy" the true story of life with Daisy, foreword written by Cesar Millan.
