“A real life example of the power of positivity and perseverance.” – Kabir Sehgal, NY Times Best-Selling Author, Deepak Chopra, MD

In this intimate portrait, Molly Weisgram describes her personal experience as caregiver, wife, and mother amidst sudden illness. On Valentine’s Day, Chris Maxwell, Molly’s husband and father of their four young children, was unexpectedly diagnosed with a severe case of Guillain-Barr? Syndrome. Chris was immediately airlifted to the hospital, where he became a quadriplegic on a ventilator in less than a week.

Without any warning, Molly and Chris embarked on a dangerous journey-one they traveled together but separately, forced into the roles of patient and caregiver. During their shattering year-long experience, they faced uncertainty, trauma, and incomprehensible mystery. They also experienced deep truth, growth, and transformation.

“Each of us is forced to take on our adversity and make it into our opportunity. Healing from the impossible, inspires all of us to exit our personal pity party and go on to be healed, healthy, and massively productive. Molly and Chris’s story will inspire and encourage you at the depth of your soul. Happy reading!”
– Mark Victor Hansen, Best-Selling Author and Co-Founder of Chicken Soup for the Soul
