When Pat Schwadron Sbarra took her son Stephan to the hospital because he was having severe migraines, she and the doctors believed that whatever was causing them was probably a minor problem. Once discovered, it would soon be cleared up and Stephan, a fourteen-year-old bursting with health, would soon be back at school and playing his beloved sports.


She had no inkling that she and Stephan had just stepped into the ring for a brutal, exhausting, agonizing fight that would last more than two years with medulloblastoma, a rare form of cancer—a brain tumor.


An Angel Touched Him and He Slept is the wrenching story of her ceaseless uphill struggle to bring her son back to health. Written from detailed notes that she kept at the time as a way to keep bewildering events straight in her head, it is the work of a naturally gifted writer who by magic or instinct or providence has deftly adapted her words to her subject.


In this fight Pat takes emotional and psychological blows that mirror the physical ones Stephan endures. Yet she musters the courage to criticize herself; to express doubts and despair; to be angry at family members and doctors; to admit self-pity; to admit jealousy of others who do not have to go through what she and Stephan must undergo.


This book will evoke your admiration, your sympathy, and most probably your tears.

Pat Schwadron Sbarra grew up in the Endicott/Endwell area of the Southern Tier of New York state, where she still lives with her husband Bill.
