"Twice an Angel, Living and Dying with Lyme Disease, The Jenny Umphress Story," is a new book on the struggle of one family and their daughter with Lyme disease. (Good Earth Publishers, ISBN 1-890050-39-3, 342 pp.)
It is an incredible story told in first person by Jenny's mom who kept impeccable records of every procedure and treatment through the years from the time Jenny was diagnosed until her death.
Written by Sue Umphress and Marilyn Nelson, a journalist and editor, it is a wonderful story of a family and of a community that were frustrated and baffled by the illness and the way Jenny was dealt with, but mostly it is the story of a wonderful girl who inspired everyone.
The family plans to use any profits to create a scholarship at a local school and donate funds for Lyme disease research. This book is such a good read for everyone including the medical profession and so timely, considering the issues we all face. I hope you will get a chance to read it, and pass it on to your friends, or better yet, to your doctor.
