Alex was a normal, bright, and healthy little girl, when the sudden onset of a mysterious illness began to take over her life. Months of physical therapy and medication failed to provide relief from acute pain and muscle spasms. Doctors across the country were at a loss for answers. A last ditch attempt at treatment, brain surgery, ended up stopping the spasms but with unexpected, dire consequences.
A Stroke of Luck is the remarkable true story of a close-knit family that meets challenge after challenge with resilience, hope, and love.

Such an inspirational story
My professor is the author of this book and has talked about her family's story in class. I wanted to read more about it and am so happy I did. The book will make you cry, laugh, get frustrated, and cheer. They are a real family and it's captured through the stories. I highly recommend it to everyone as it shows what you can overcome with love, support, and perseverance. Alex and her family are so inspirational.
