Welcome to the Internet! Letting God sort the dirty laundry of life.
When our daughter became well after losing fourteen precious years to illness, I knew we needed to reach out to others who were suffering-or would suffer-from this painful, debilitating illness. After answering endless phone calls and emails, I saw the need to write a book. At the time, I envisioned the book as the final "answer" to the many queries coming in each and every day. Being that I have a husband, four children and eight grandchildren, I was shortchanging myself and my family by spending endless hours answering emails and phone calls.
Well, welcome to the internet. It seems any good intention in this life will meet its evil counterpart when the two collide in cyberspace. The book, specifically the content of the book, was content David Wiseman of the International Adhesions Society did not want ill individuals reading. After a phone call from David in 2003-a man I do not know and have never met-and my lack of interest (refusal) to hand the rights of the book over to him, David began an internet smear campaign against me, the book about my daughter's painful journey, and against Dr. Daniel Kruschinski, the surgeon who helped our daughter.
With that explained, please refer back to the first paragraph above, as this is all one needs to know about the book. Or, you can continue on...
When the online smear began, I found it hard to believe such evil actually existed. Since that time, I have come to realize that anyone who has a heart to give back will have haters. One thing is certain, however, attacks will never change our story: my daughter needlessly suffered 14 years in agonizing pain and was ignored (i.e., left to suffer) by many of the "best" according to USA medical standards, yet a in a mere 4-hour surgery in Europe, she was finally made completely well.
