This is a story about a young lady, Missy, aged twelve at the time of her writing this book.

Missy suffers from a rare blood disease called Primary Immune Deficiency. This has required her to have replacement therapy of antibodies via intravenous or subcutaneous infusion her whole life. At the time of printing this book Missy undergoes daily infusion of antibodies into her abdomen which takes approximately two hours every day.

Not only has Missy suffered with physical health but she also has had immense struggles with learning. Missy was diagnosed with severe dyslexia and dyspraxia amongst a number of other complex learning disorders!

This little book is a miracle in many ways. A child who was given very little hope for learning, or even life, has accomplished writing her own story about the life she lives!
