Canary in a Bubble (Paperback)
Unexplained throat swelling, pain, and nausea mark only the start of Summer's decade-long search for answers that spanned numerous hospitals and state lines. Her illness, at first believed by doctors to be a case of anxiety and a simple allergy, becomes worse after she is prescribed medications that continue to provoke reactions. Only after several rounds of bloodwork and tests is a tick-borne disease discovered-one of many that would continue to stump specialists and leave some questioning, "Are you sure this isn't all in your head?"
Through her own research and the help of support groups, Summer uncovers her true diagnosis: an immune condition not yet well known among the medical community. After years of surviving only on a limited number of foods and now in a wheelchair, she relies on her faith in God like never before and discovers an unexpected treatment option that just may change everything.
Canary in a Bubble is based on a true story and is a must read that will leave you feeling awakened and inspired.
