When Susannah Meadows’ son was diagnosed with juvenile idiopathic arthritis, they were told that his illness would never go away. When he made an astonishing full recovery, it was both a gift and a revelation. Perhaps "incurable" isn't the brick wall we assume it to be. Meadows, a journalist and the author of The Other Side of Impossible, discovered others who came back from diseases considered irreversible including food allergies, multiple sclerosis, intractable epilepsy, and rheumatoid arthritis.

She also delves into the science to show why perseverance itself may be a prescription for recovery.
