About the Book
Matt, Melford, Miracles: A Boy’s Courageous Journey is the story of Maureen Wierman’s family and the grief journey they traveled after their seven-year-old son, Matt, was diagnosed with a rare leukemia.
Maureen hopes her story will encourage other families who have experienced the loss of a child or a loved one. This includes the impact on a marriage and on family and friends, both initially and throughout the years. Their story is one of faith and making the best of tough situations and discovering ways to navigate the journey successfully. Her goal is that others will discover that you never lose hope, you are not alone, and there is no right or wrong way to "do grief, “ but in reading Matt’s story you will know that you can heal and move forward.
