Poignant and bittersweet, Christopher's Journey is the true story of a remarkable young man's battle with leukemia and the lives that he touches along the way. Author Maribeth Ditmars chronicles her son Christopher's chemotherapy treatments, his irrepressible antics, and finally, his insightful acceptance of his own illness.
"Maribeth Ditmars writes with a special sense of humor so reminiscent of Chris. Her understanding of the critical need for laughter during such difficult times is a valuable message to all who read her words. Chris's story, as told from a mother's perspective, will be helpful to others as they journey through treatment, recovery, and sometimes loss."
