Motherhood Exaggerated: Dealing with life-threatening illness in a child

Motherhood Exaggerated by Judith Hannan is a book I can relate to. It is the story of motherhood dealing with a child who has a life threatening illness. Judith's daughter has a rare bone cancer; my son has a congenital heart defect. My son's illness was discovered when he was a baby. Judith's daughter's was discovered when she was eight-years-old.

Judith Hannan has performed a valuable service by publishing this remarkably honest account of the crisis she and her family went through as her daughter--now a brilliant and beautiful young woman--dealt with a rare form of cancer. She takes us with her on her journey through the valley of the shadow of death and then back to the sunshine of life. Tears of remembrance came to my eyes and will to the eyes of other readers who have been through similar crises. Judith's willingness to share intimate
feelings and to discuss difficult moments is a gift that will help so many, as it has already helped me, to deal with the pas [sic] as well as the future. --Alan M. Dershowitz
