A courageous memoir that spans 40 years of Dinaaz's life experiences within our health care system. The story is raw, thought provoking and a brilliant look at complications and uncertainties when a medical challenge being faced is rare and uncertain. An extremely powerful example of how self-belief and trusting your own gut instinct can allow you to overcome any of life's challenges.
