A true story about a baby with leukemia. His sister is a perfect donor match for bone marrow. Then they find out that their medical insurance has a 12 month waiting period for transplants.

The story then goes on to tell about all the wonderful people who worked and donated time and money to raise the $200,000 for the transplant.
Such a beautifully written book that had me on the edge of tears throughout. It was inspiring to read about a father who put so much faith in God while his 6 month old son lay dying. I was filled with such joy and love to hear how mere children raised thousands of dollars to save this little boy's life. How so many people gave what they could to a stranger. It gives me such hope to read that there /are/ those people out there.
