"...a moving, suspenseful page-turner that's likely to become a classic of medical storytelling." —The Washington Post

New York Times science reporter Gina Kolata follows a family through genetic illness and one courageous daughter who decides her fate shall no longer be decided by a genetic flaw.

The phone rings. The doctor from California is on the line. “Are you ready Amanda?” The two people Amanda Baxley loves the most had begged her not to be tested—at least, not now. But she had to find out.

If your family carried a mutated gene that foretold a brutal illness and you were offered the chance to find out if you’d inherited it, would you do it? Would you walk toward the problem, bravely accepting whatever answer came your way? Or would you avoid the potential bad news as long as possible?

In Mercies in Disguise, acclaimed New York Times science reporter and bestselling author Gina Kolata tells the story of the Baxleys, an almost archetypal family in a small town in South Carolina. A proud and determined clan, many of them doctors, they are struck one by one with an inscrutable illness. They finally discover the cause of the disease after a remarkable sequence of events that many saw as providential. Meanwhile, science, progressing for a half a century along a parallel track, had handed the Baxleys a resolution—not a cure, but a blood test that would reveal who had the gene for the disease and who did not. And science would offer another dilemma—fertility specialists had created a way to spare the children through an expensive process.

A work of narrative nonfiction, Mercies in Disguise is the story of a family that took matters into its own hands when the medical world abandoned them. It’s a story of a family that had to deal with unspeakable tragedy and yet did not allow it to tear them apart. And it is the story of a young woman—Amanda Baxley—who faced the future head on, determined to find a way to disrupt her family’s destiny.

Do they get tested? How do you live your life knowing you have a strong chance of getting A Child's Memories of Wartime 1939-1945 devastating A family carries a mutated gene that causes a neurological illness How To Speak And Understand Your Bull Terrier's Hidden Language: Fun and Fascinating Guide to The Inner World of Dogs no one can diagnosis or treatAs difficult as it is for the Baxleys to deal with the disease itself, they are also forced to look at their own inherited risk.In addition Alcatraz Del Caribe: Las Memorias De Un Preso Politico Cubano (Spanish Edition) recounting the The Sealyham Terrier: A Complete and Comprehensive Owners Guide to: Buying, Owning, Health, Grooming, Training, Obedience, Understanding and Caring ... to Caring for a Dog from a Puppy to Old Age) family's medical memoirs, Kolata also examines the many ethical issues associated with the diseaseIf you could take a simple blood test to reveal whether or not you have the genes, would you take it?It is equal parts science history (chronicling the early discovery of neurological diseases and specifically prion-related diseases) and family biography (telling the story of the Baxleys, who have 3 documented generations of the disease GSS.) There doesn't appear to be any rhyme or reason for when the book shifts from present-day Baxley description and early-day discoveries of neurological disease among New Zealand nativesThis is the story of the Baxley family who never knew the name The Life of General Francis Marion what had plagued their family for generations until they started researching it on their ownI can't imagine that my grandfather, uncle, Superhero Jaylen: A 6 x 9 Lined Journal One Jacked Monkey Publications father have died from a degenerative brain Abraham Lincoln and the Outbreak of the Civil War: Address Delivered by Colonel David N. Foster, February 17, 1929, Before the First Presbyterian Church, Fort Wayne, Indiana (Classic Reprint) consult with leading doctors but no diagnosis or treatment is in sightThis is likely because I most enjoy a Changeling's Return narrative, and I've found that in many non fiction books I've read, the "characters" were very difficult to connect with and the "story" too dense to followDespite this, and as the subtitles suggest, both books contain a welcome measure of hope they are not merely medical procedurals that end with diagnoses and death, but family stories fraught with difficult choices and palpable compassion 48a4f088c3
