It's a special day when a book is born, not just for the writer or the reader, or the family and friends of the writer...it's the day when someones words and thoughts are preserved forever.
Kissed By An Angel is more than just an anthology filled with amazing stories about children with special abilities...it's a book put together by an amazing group of women all in the name of love and hope.
Robyn Campbell's son Christopher has Sturge-Weber Syndrome. You can pop over to the Sturge-Weber Foundation site to learn a lot more than I can ever explain to you. The thing you automatically see when you meet someone with Sturge-Weber Syndrome is what is commonly called a port-wine stain, a dark red coloring over one part of their face, but that's just what is happening on the outside. On the inside lots of terrifying things are going on. Once Christopher had a headache for 18 months! I can't imagine the pain he was in and the pain Robyn was in watching him. There was nothing doctors could do to help. A lot of praying was going on across the world for Christopher during that time. He has seizures constantly.
Imagine if this was your child. So...
This amazing group of writers ( Robyn Campbell, Lynn Kelley, Yvette Carol, Theresa Milstein, Cheryl Secomb, Catherine Johnson, Suzy Levinson, Erik Weibel, Hope Lim, Vivian Kirkfield, Ellen Leventhal) got together and wrote a book with the proceeds going to the Sturge-Weber Foundation. Perhaps, if enough awareness is it there about the suffering children and people who have this syndrome go through it will eventually lead to a cure.
Please take a moment and think about all the charity donations you make. Perhaps a book purchase, a Facebook post, and a tweet to encourage others to buy Kissed By An Angel will bring up awareness of Sturgis-Weber Syndrome and help children and families affected by this disease.
