"A Roll of the Dice" by Mona Dash (English Edition)
Mona Dash’s first child is born with SCID (Severe Combined Immuno-Deficiency) for which there is no treatment in his country. And so begins her roller-coaster journey which spans ten years, takes her from India to London, and involves her in the complexities of genetic medicine.
Mona Dash writes her story of genetics roulette without self-pity, with astounding courage and even humour. Her memoir contains valuable information for couples facing infertility and complicated pregnancies, for parents of premature babies, and children with SCID.
With an Introduction by Professor Bobby Gaspar of Great Ormond Street Hospital, pioneer in gene therapy.
A deeply affecting book, touching and beautifully rendered. A powerful read from an exciting new voice.
