Madness, Miracles, Millions Review

book review_1_edited-002The opportunity to read and review a book  about Type I diabetes came along and I knew I had to sign up right away.  My family is no stranger to the in’s and out’s of diabetes and I could not pass up this chance.  I am so glad I did not.

Madness, Miracles, Millions is the story of a family and their never-ending journey of obstacles, circumstances, and the adversity that they overcame in their every day lives. When their young son is handed a diagnosis of diabetes the Semprevivo’s do not back down. They face the deadly fear of diabetes head on.  This is a story so poignantly told by the father and son team of Larry and Joseph  Semprevivo.  Their family’s road has been filled with peaks and valleys, road blocks, and smooth sailing.  The never give up attitude of this entire family and their ability to hit a home run from every curve-ball thrown their way is inspiring.

We have lots of experience with Type I diabetes as our youngest son was diagnosed at age 6 in 1997.  It is always intriguing to read about how another family has handled a diagnosis of this magnitude.  It lets us know that we are not the only ones who have gone through all of this “stuff”.  The Semprevivo’s are a unique family, and their love and compassion for one another shines through in each chapter of the story.

If you are looking or need  to read a feel good story this is a book you will not want to pass up.  Madness, Miracles, Millions is a well-edited, easy read.  It will leave you with a sense of positivity from beginning to end.

  1. This sounds interesting. I never had experience with diabetes as a kid or as a mother. It always seemed such a foreign matter that I couldn’t grasp. Now it seems so common (Type II). I’m learning lately just a smidgen of what folks like you have known for so long.

    Thanks for sharing the review!

    I am really glad that no one in our family suffers from diabetes or any other terrible disease. It does sound like a good book — thanks for the review.
