Stephen Neafcy has lived for over 50 years with brain damage caused by Fetal Alcohol. His journey of not having a clue what was wrong in his life lasted until he was 43 when he was diagnosed. The revelation of knowing what was wrong, provided the courage to carry on and begin to help others. The Long Way to Simple - 50 years of ideas to live, love and laugh as a person with FASD is more than just his story, it is a life program for young adults following in his footsteps. Steve provides us with hope.
