About A Breath of Hope
Author Jo S. Kittinger sounds a call for fairness and justice in this picture-book depiction of medical-legal partnerships in action. Brilliantly illustrated by Chuck Galey, the book depicts how medical-legal partnerships and legal aid can transform the lives of families in need. The text focuses on the plight of a small girl suffering with asthma because of a landlord's neglect of an apartment contaminated with mold. Torn between being evicted and the heath of their daughter, the family is connected to a legal representative by the doctor who cares for the child.
The book's worthy message will likely strike a universal chord with families, hospital administrators, doctors, family lawyers and anyone who can promote or benefit from medical-legal partnerships. This is a tender story, touched with sadness for a family in need. Jo S. Kittinger has created a moving parable perfect for use in hospital or institutional settings to explain this important new concept.
