Chronic Hope is a long drink of cool water for the parent thirsting for practical wisdom in navigating the emotional stress of raising their chronically ill child.
From the first page, Bonnie O’Neil draws parents into her story of shattered expectations and broken dreams. She shares her honest and deeply personal journey raising a child with type 1 diabetes, illuminating the heartbreak parents experience after their child’s diagnosis with chronic illness. Chronic Hope delivers practical insight and solutions while avoiding the tone of a typical self-help book. Instead, it reads like a conversation with a friend, where one parent’s stories give the other parent permission to feel the full range of their emotions and encourages them to discover hope in the long journey. Through story and reflection, Bonnie gently shares a vision of navigating chronic disease with strength, resilience and loving self-sacrifice.
