Description
A moving and inspiring memoir about a mother's bid to do anything possible to save her son from a rare illness, using the controversial Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis method. Saving Henry is the story of a mother, Laurie, and her son, Henry, who was born with an almost-always fatal illness, Fanconi Anaemia. Laurie decided to undergo PGD, the genetic screening of her second child at foetus stage to determine if his stem cells could cure Henry. The bid failed. And it failed nine times after that. A heartrending account of a mother fighting to save her son.
