Rachel Wiebe's son, Austin, has Polyarteritis Nodosa. Here is her tribute to his brave struggle with the illness.
I wrote this
poem to my son, Austin, shortly after his brain hemorrhage. His speech was
just starting to come back and we knew he was going to make it. It was
another night in the hospital and I couldn't sleep, so I put my pen to
paper and wrote this poem.

Val is Austin's Godparent. She has subscribed to the PAN Support Group
in place of Austin's mother.
