"This book provides much needed insight into how a chronic disease can affect the patient, their families and their friends. In addition, this book spreads awareness on a rare disease and the implications of having one that not even many medical providers have a decent grasp on to provide adequate care. This book is great for family and friends of patients, their medical providers and other patients to help provide clarity and an understanding of the struggle related." -BAM2017

"When someone is living with a debilitating autoimmune disease, knowing others who are struggling shows you are not alone. This book was written by a very dear friend of mine and I have witnessed her battle with MG. It's a very descriptive account of what she has been through and what she is going through. I recommend it highly, as it will give others insight to C. Lewis's journey in hopes it can help them face the disease like she does,... as a Warrior!" -Beth

"I wasn’t too sure what to expect from this book but from the beginning it grabbed hold of me. It’s frank, open, and written from the heart. It took me into her life, the hidden life that few people ever see, the one behind closed doors.
This disease is an enigma; doctors are still learning about it and how/why it affects everyone differently. So far, they have only seen the tip of this iceberg. In C M Lewis’s story, we see the journey of discovery for both Ms. Lewis and for the many doctors she visits over the years. The trial and error, the medical mistakes, the small victories, the alone-ness, the slow path of discovery. This book will take you into the life of someone learning to be her own advocate, searching for survival tactics, the mistakes made and the lessons learned. The battle is an ongoing, daily struggle for everyone with this “hidden” disease." -Jackie, Hermitage, TN
