Maybe this is finally over . . .? ?from Damon's blog, May 2004 A FAMILY' S LOVE lies at the heart of this gifted boy's fight to survive.

"[This is] a heartbreaking and bitter memoir. It's a love letter to his son and an attack on the New York doctors he's suing. Only heartless readers wouldn't be sympathetic. . . ." - Bob Minzesheimer 03/01/2012
