Overview

This is the inspiring story of a newly canonized contemporary woman. Gianna Molla (1923-1962) risked her life in order to save her unborn child. Diagnosed with uterine tumors during her fourth pregnancy, she refused a hysterectomy that would have aborted the child, and opted for a riskier surgery in an attempt to save the baby. Herself a medical doctor, Molla did give birth to the child, but succumbed to an infection.

An Italian woman who loved skiing, playing piano, attending concerts at the Milan Conservatory, Molla was a dedicated physician and devoted wife and mother who lived life to the fullest, yet generously risked death by cancer for the sake of her child.

A unique story, co-authored by her own husband, with his deeply moving personal insights of the heroic witness, love, sacrifice and joy of his saintly wife. A woman for all times and walks of life, this moving account of the multi-faceted, selfless St. Gianna Molla, who made the ultimate sacrifice to save her unborn child, will be an inspiration to all readers.

    Beautifully inspiring book!

    This book is a "must read" for those who believe in the sanctity of human life, as well as for moms and dads who are trying to be good and holy parents. What a marvelous example St. Gianna is! Even though she is a Catholic Saint, I feel anyone can benefit from this book if it is read with an open heart.

    GK

    I want you to know how very much I appriciate having you as a friend. I worry about so many things, and you ALWAYS listen and encourage me to stay focused. I worried I wasn't doing as good as I could, then I stopped worrying and kind of gave up all together. That didn't work out either, Satan tripped me then kicked me on the ground, but I think the bad part was I didn't want to tell anyone. But when i did talk to you about it you were so encouraging and loving. My parents or someone else could say the same thing but it wouldn't mean as much to me and I honestly wouldn't really have listened(working on that) so I know Jehovah had you say it so it got through my big forhead. I know you have had and still do have plenty of problems to deal with but you always seem happy and that's what I want. So thank you for your endless attention and I love you so much! My dad always talks about all the stuff his older brother did to help him when he was my age and I understand why they're so close now, the smallest things mean a lot when they come from someone you look up to!
