An ordinary family is faced with an extraordinary challenge, a child with cystic fibrosis. This is their story, rich and moving, as they laugh and cry and learn and grow. Their love, faith, and commitment to each other carry them through battles with depression, anger, despair, and the ravages of the disease as they join a race with death for a cure. What emerges is THE SPIRIT OF LO, which enables the family and their community to face each new day of life's dance on the edge of mortality.
