Eagle Feathers and Angel Wings: Micah's Story by Shelley Muniz

The Chase family, Shelley and Del and sons, Micah and Nick, lived in the home they had built in the foothills of Central California amidst manzanita, cedars and pine. Happy and healthy, the family worked, romped and played in their hilltop paradise where homegrown food and family rituals were the norm. All of that changed in the summer of 1991 when twelve-year-old Micah was diagnosed with acute myelocytic leukemia. What followed was a nightmarish battle waged not only in Micah's young body but also on fronts unimaginable and unconscionable.

Narrated by his mother, Eagle Feathers and Angel Wings chronicles Micah's courage and the demolition of foundations her family believed were enduring: home, integrity, and the fulfillment of obligations. Muniz reveals the vivid truth about the essential rights of the catastrophically ill, struggles with health care coverage and medical care.

This inspiring remembrance is the documentation of a family's love, their efforts to find answers for Micah, and a resolution to his pain even after his death. Eagle Feathers and Angel Wings is much more than a story of loss. It is a story about living.
