by Norma Fitts

A true story of two transplant recipients’ unbreakable bond.


At seven years old Norma survives a liver transplant, then, twenty-one years later, adopts a baby girl who develops cancer and requires a new, life-saving liver. It could be a coincidence. Or fate. Or God’s will. But history is repeating.

A raw and personal account of childhood illness. Norma’s words and emotions resonate with me as the mother of a pediatric cancer survivor, as I’m sure they will for other parents who have experienced a similar journey.

—Sarah Rulman, creator of Libby’s Toy Drive for Maine Children’s Cancer Program, interned for Make-A-Wish Maine, mother of three, and advocate and speaker for childhood cancer awareness with a degree in mental health and human services
