It’s a riveting tale of depression and tragedy, pleasure and laughter. I couldn’t positioned it down and that i desire you discover it a similar way...perhaps simply now not so overdue into the wee hours of the night.

Re-told from journals, the tale unfolds like a medical-mystery. Will the twins continue to exist? Will they've got devastating disabilities?

They lose everything--savings and retirement debts are emptied; property are bought and their home is misplaced as they fall into the bottomless pit of clinical financial ruin.

Our leaders in medical health insurance, clinical companies, and govt have did not tackle a gap within the very textile of our society. A gap so colossal it swallows households at a time once they are experiencing life-threatening concerns. For what's the element of scientific miracles if there's no solution to pay for them?

Our society has built machines and strategies to maintain and expand existence opposed to all odds. yet at what fee? households with the monetary burden of catastrophic clinical debts will see their monetary balance, their destiny, even their very viability as a relations slip away. If technological know-how can store the infants, who will keep the family?
