'A MOTHER WARRIOR IS . . .
a mother who hears there is no hope for her child and, instead of retreating and mourning, breaks down walls, weaves her way through obstacles, follows her intuition even when people tell her she is crazy. She is a mother who believes in hope.' - From Mother Warriors
STORIES OF HOPE AND RECOVERY FROM A NATION OF PARENTS OF AUTUSTIC CHILDREN
Across the country, parents are fighting Herculean battles against an intransigent medical community that refuses to believe that autism can be healed. Mothers are going into battle for proper diagnosis and effective treatment, often at great personal cost. Jenny McCarthy knows what it's like-she put her career and personal life on hold when she realized something was wrong with her son, Evan. Her sacrifice has brought national awareness to the controversy over the causes and treatment of autism. Now, Jenny wants everyone to know that there are other warriors out there, and their stories will inspire and inform anyone facing a similar struggle.
Miracles happen every day, but rarely are the miracle makers celebrated. Mother Warriorsintroduces everyday heroes who fought doctors, schools, psychologists, and even their own families to get the help they needed to successfully heal their children.
Accompanied by a list of autism resources and a comprehensive directory of DAN! (Defeat Autism Now!) doctors, Mother Warriors an inspiring and practical tool that will empower parents to join the fight against autism and reclaim their children's lives.
