It's amazing the things that happen in life. How things can seem so good and turn in such a short time. I thought the feelings portrayed in this movie where great. It showed how everyone in a family would feel in this situation and the determination of parents to protect their children. It's true to that a lot of doctors will just hand you one thing after another until something works, the sad part is that that is all they can do. They may be studied but no amount of studying will make you know everything. It is also true that diet can be under rated. Everything we use is made from nature, why not try it in it's simple form? And why not try everything you can? It is a difficult decision, one that can result in death no matter what road you take so I do feel the mom was a little harsh on the options she was given, but at the same time, if your child was suffering and on the edge of death, I'm sure you would bite every head off too. I know I would. Great movie, very educational, and inspiring.

Awesome movie, based on true story. If you think having no insurance in this country is ok, watch this movie. It can happen to YOU. It happened to a guy WITH A JOB.
