Summary
Transcends the subject of illness to become an inspiring meditation on the enduring nature of love. One day Kelly Crimmins was a happy seemingly healthy twelve-year-old; the next she confessed to her mom that she'd had blood in her urine for months. After a series of tests, Kelly was diagnosed with a life-threatening, potentially terminal autoimmune disease. This story chronicles the three-year medical and emotional journey, which took them from Philadelphia to Minnesota's Mayo Clinic and back again. Cathy writes about the toll taken on a young girl who suddenly becomes a patient, and about a mom who in fighting for her little girl's life becomes sick herself with worry and fear
