From: On the Wings of Love: ....Anyone, after the death of a beloved child, goes over the past, looking for clues, for turning points, for hidden knowledge that might have made for different outcomes. No one can completley escape the painful 'what if' game.... ....Three doctors entered the room and examined him carefully....He has Kawasaki's Disease. She said more, but in our relief to have found some answers, the only words we heard were cure and aspirin. Joy washed over us like sunshine....Simple problems. A simple solution. Not so simple. Later we learned we had misunderstood Dr. Naqvi. Aspirin is a treatment. There is no cure for Kawasaki's...but that night we had welcome hope.

About the Author:

Donna Rhodes Collins is a positive, outgoing woman who did not choose to be a writer, but when her teenage grandson died from Kawasaki's which he had when had contracted as a preschooler, she found she had something so important to write about, she took pen in hand and produced a book that has been acknowledged by readers around the world. The American Heart Association reports that Kawasaki's is the greatest source of heart disease in children. The author has been honored by the Kawasaki Foundation and by Dr. Kawasaki, who is credited with discovering the disease that bears his name.

Review:

This is a warm and loving portrait of a family and their love for each other. This book also provides a great deal of insight about how families deal with illness and it can help us (medical personnel) to communicate better. --Ian C. Bafour, M.D.

Kawasaki, the disease comes at the reader like a run-away truck. For anyone who has either lost a child or is in fear of losing one, this book can be healing. --Bernie Rhodes, author of D.B. Cooper, The Real McCoy
