About the Book

This book details Fatima’s journey as a two-time liver transplant recipient. The book is also about how her health struggles affected her personally and how the youth who have grown up with chronic illnesses can have normal yet special lives and how their families cope and become their strength. She also writes about how families from very different ethnic backgrounds come close together and form a strong bond in the pain of their children and their common challenges. She discussed the medical mistakes, which become life-changing for so many, and how there should be more acknowledgment of them rather than putting a lid on them. Finally, Fatima talks about how she came to spread awareness about organ donation; shares her story through social media, media, and public speaking; and how she came to be a part of a community of transplant patients, donor families, and those with chronic illness who united together through diversity and helped each other during their struggles. This book details how her life changed after her second liver transplant and the medical mistakes that Fatima endured.
