SIDELIGHTS: Joanne Hilden told CA: "There has been a single motivation for my writing: to give assistance to the parents of children with life-threatening conditions. They navigate a maze of systems and emotions, and have had to do so without good instructions. Parents in this difficult situation are motivated by the strongest love there is, yet face the saddest problem there is. I write to shed a ray of light on their situation and to add hope."
