This book is an inspirational story of how a mother's intuition helped save her son's life. It is an easy read but a powerful story that any parent can related to. I highly recommend this read.

I read this book as I to am a mother who had a child with a rare disease. I was unimpressed by this book. When you have a child with a rare decease you need to be patience and create relationships with doctors. I got the impression that this Mom, doctor shopped rather then stuck with a pediatrician who could get to see there was a problem. In reading the book I did get the impression that there was a specialist that "screwed" up. However ,I think if there was a pediatrician that had been following this child from the beginning, the doctor probably would have had better history and been looking for a different diagnosis. I just felt Mom moved around a lot with doctors which was part of the delayed diagnosis. Doctors are held to a very high standard but they are not God; and her son had a rare disease, patience on her part whom have been better severed. She probably would have gotten an earlier diagnosis if she didn't move around so much! Just my opinion. I felt like this book just did not speak well to our medical community, which I have found to be great!
