In the tradition of Lorenzo's Oil, a brutally searing story of one mother's quest to save her child's lifeOne 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.A Mother’s Nightmare details Cathy and Kelly’s 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. As she did in her award-winning Where Is the Mango Princess?, Cathy makes illness both personal and universal. It’s an account all readers will find memorable and moving.
