Overview

How does a loving and caring mother cope when her child develops a life-threatening illness? In an honest but gut-wrenching way Shawn Williams takes the reader through just such an ordeal from the fateful day when the doctor first mentioned the dreaded words "Aplastic Anemia" until a year later when the story reaches its climax.

This account transports one directly to Danielle's hospital room, to the Intensive Care Units and to the Operating Rooms where the various events unfolded. The reader shares the pain which both Danielle and her distraught mother endured, the false hopes of different treatment attempts, the minor triumphs along the way, the "small blessings" that cheered them at times and the despair when, in the final analysis, all of the treatments had the same result.

Through the sadness of Danielle's Story shines a message of real hope and confidence for the future. It is an overwhelmingly touching and moving narrative. Reading certain passages will make you cry, others will make you laugh, but all of them will re-affirm your own faith in the Almighty and in the value of prayer for one's own internal well being.

I would recommend this book for all health care workers. This will give you the side of a parent of a sick child. It is a quick read. I read it in one day. Be prepared to cry. This book is about a true love of a mom and her child. If every child could be loved this much. She recieved a lifetime of love in 11 years.

This is a must read, especially if you are a parent going through a losing battle with a serious illness in your child. A very touching and emotional story.
