Excellent book by talented, compassionate professionals. Brings much needed hope and awareness to some of the most devastating illness we often encounter in our own lives or those we love. Alleviates suffering and anxiety by offering help and light to some of the most misunderstood afflictions. Great resource and help for every reader.
