Gary's Wish List
Mary Louise Selph
Gary's Wish List is an account of a seventeen-year-old gutsy teenager's fight with leukemia and a bone marrow transplant. His "Wish List" was written while hospitalized in a sealed protective environment waiting for his immune system to recover. Gary's wish list, his journal, letters written to a favorite nurse and hospital staff, a camping story penned in that same protected environment, and Gary's mother's journal are used in the telling of this compelling story. Gary's basic wishes,his fears, faith, and fortitude influence every aspect of this account of a family in crisis and how they survived. It is written to aid other people in similar situations.
