Faced with a medical challenge, I found myself reading your book and learning how to handle the stress, anxiety, and aggravation that accompanies a medical challenge. Your book has helped me view my situation as medical challenge as opposed to being a crisis. I strongly recommend this book to anyone who needs guidelines and/or a boost of encouragement to help them get through a medical challenge. -Eli Varenberg
