Leigh, My Amazing Son: He carried his disability with grace and dignity (Paperback)
Our children are our future. We count down the months and weeks to the happy event of their birth. When they are born we are overwhelmed with a flood of emotions: relief, contentment, pride, love and joy. We are excited about what their future may hold. However, our baby was born with many challenges; he was a 'hospital baby'.
Leigh, My Amazing Son is a revealing and evocative story sharing personal insight into the arduous journey of a man with a severe disability and his mother/carer. If you are living with a disability, are a carer, or simply someone who has compassion for others, you will most certainly feel a strong connection to many of the events described in this book.
This book is also dedicated to better patient care. Inadvertently, Leigh played a pivotal role in this quest. As a direct result of his experiences within the hospital system, changes were made to the Consensus Resuscitation Plan and the accompanying information sheet on CPR, used by two major hospitals.
This is the story of Leigh's fight for life.
