About Lauren Casey
The Way My Heart Beats is a memoir through the eyes of a wife and a mother whose husband and son both have congenital heart defects (CHD) despite the lack of a proven genetic link.
The memoir details the emotional rollercoaster journey that was the first year of their sons’ life, following his father’s footsteps on his own CHD journey.
The book is an invaluable, albeit confronting read for all parents with children diagnosed with CHD and aims to provide them with hope, empathy and empowerment. It is the story that no medical professional can explain as it details a parent’s perspective of the ins and outs of the hospital setting with a child who has a life-threatening illness.
