Family's Fight to Save Child Spreads Hope Around Globe
Date:2/11/2010

A modern-day story of tragedy turned triumph.

Supporter Mark Gnau said, “I don’t know how they stay strong, but they do, and that has given me strength.”

"We can't sit around and do nothing, we can't bury another child," Miranda said in a press conference just over a week ago, where they un
