Editorial Reviews

Review

"This book chronicles the suffering, despair, and ultimate triumph of the Unger family in overcoming a deadly pediatric cancer called neuroblastoma. Faced with desperate situations, his loving family was determined to save his young life by reaching out to friends and the internet to search for expertise in novel cancer therapies. Throughout this arduous journey, and without any guarantee of success, they have courageously walked into the unknown. Louis was indeed a trail blazer in the then untested clinical study, which has now proven to help many other children afflicted with neuroblastoma that has spread to the brain. We all salute the Ungers for their courage."

Nai-Kong V. Cheung
MD, PhD, Head, Neuroblastoma Program; Enid A. Haupt Chair in Pediatric Oncology, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center

From the Author

Our son's battle with childhood cancer changed everything for my family. Sharing our story brings all the difficult emotions flooding back, but I believe it's a journey worth describing because it might help others. This book shows how my family cried, laughed, and rode the scariest roller coaster imaginable.   Our son's survivalbecame an obsession. We learned it was ultimately up to us to protect our son and to find the best path for his survival. Louis, who was three when first diagnosed, showed the unrelenting courage and determination of a true warrior. He gave us the strength to confront and reject the diagnosis of "Zero chance of survival."

I hope this book honors our extended family, friends, and the dedicated doctors who ultimately made the difference between life and death for our son. My message is this: There are no dead ends, only new paths.
