This true story chronicles the frustrations and joys of Kathy Tank as she fought to beat, and made progress against, Lou Gehrig's Disease (ALS). Told from the perspective of her husband, "River of Hope" reveals how the medical establishment failed Kathy at nearly every step of the way, and how she discovered a sense of hope, made progress, and met some wonderful, caring people when she stepped outside of the established medical system.

This story of Kathy's determination to beat a disease the "experts" told he was unbeatable, is both inspiring and tragic, hopeful and heartbreaking. Many readers have commented that "River of Hope" is as much a love story as it is a valuable, hope-filled book about battling ALS.

"River of Hope" is a rare and intimate look into a mysterious disease that, unfortunately, is no longer quite so rare and may not be as mysterious as we thought.

Kathy's story may make you laugh. It may make you cry. Chances are it will make you angry. And it will most certainly make you take a closer at your lifestyle, our medical system and the advice you receive from the medical "experts."

If you or someone you know has recently been diagnosed with ALS, this should be one of the first books you read. Even if you have no connection to ALS, it is an excellent book for anyone who cares about his or her health.
