Congratulations to Leah Kaminsky

Congratulations to Varuna Alumna Leah Kaminsky on the publication of her book: Cracking the Code, Leah Kaminsky with Stephen and Sally Damiani (Random House Books, April 2015)

"Kaminsky seamlessly inserts Stephen and Sally's voices, allowing them to express the impact of their ordeal in their own words. She also emphasises that it was the Damianis' strength and determination that heralded this international breakthrough in medical science." - Dianne Dempsey in The Sydney Morning Herald

A family doctor shares a mother and father's determination to save their son.

This story of a father's search to find a diagnosis, and ultimately a cure, for his son's mystery disease is an inspiration that has set the world of genetic medicine and research abuzz with the possibilities for the future. After Cracking the Code screened on Australian Story Stephen Damiani and his extraordinary ordinary family, have been inundated with messages of support for Mission Massimo.

Cracking the Code is simultaneously a wonderful family memoir and the story of some mind-blowing discoveries in medicine.
