What would it be like to navigate this life under the shadow of a deadly disease? How would you cope, both physically and psychologically? Approximately 30,000 people in our country live with the devastating illness, cystic fibrosis, and one in twenty Caucasians are carriers of its gene. Many among us are affected by CF, but few really know much about it. "David's Promise" delivers an in-depth examination of a young man's life-long confrontation with cystic fibrosis. Through the fictional main character of David, the reader is given a deeply personal chance to experience love's ultimate triumph over illness. The story explores all the complexities of David's life, and as each layer unfolds, the reader begins to look beyond David's medical diagnosis and into his heart. The young man is a teacher with a pregnant wife and a whole slew of struggles, including the implications of genetic testing, the question of abortion, and denial of medical insurance coverage in this country. This novel does not pull any punches concerning the stark realities of cystic fibrosis, yet it was written to offer hope and understanding about an often hopeless and misunderstood disease.
