Saving Henry is a powerful and poignant memoir about a mother’s love and the bravery of her son through their fight to cure his life-threatening illness – and the impact that Henry has had on the lives of so many.
Laurie & Henry
On October 25, 1995, Laurie Strongin gave birth to her first child, a son named Henry Strongin Goldberg. Henry was born with a heart condition that was operable, but which proved to be a precursor for a rare, almost-always fatal illness: Fanconi anemia.
Over a period of seven years, Laurie and her husband Allen Goldberg turned Henry’s death sentence into a challenge to live life to its fullest while pursuing every medical treatment available. Saving Henry tells Henry’s extraordinary story from beginning to end as the family tested the limits of science while exploring the depths of their love. It is a story where science, love, genes, reproductive rights, ethics and politics collide; where hopes and dreams are made and dashed and where, in the end, Henry’s death paved the way for others to live.
