SUMMARY
After a seemingly insignificant fall off of his brother's shoulders at a high school soccer game, thirteen-year-old Devin Weckstein was diagnosed with Complex Regional Pain Syndrome. The bright, musically talented, and energetic boy turned into a debilitated young man seemingly overnight. His parents sought every treatment possible, but no one could have imagined the challenges that lay ahead. The Burning Truth chronicles the incredible journey of mother and son as they not only deal with chronic pain, but also attempt to find a cure for Devin's illness. With a deeply honest voice, Weckstein relives their frustrations with physicians and the medical care system, the special education within the school system, the inconceivable misconceptions regarding pain in children, and the daunting world of medical marijuana. Two tireless years of diligent searching later, the Wecksteins learned about Dr. David Sherry from the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. Despair turned to hope. During his five grueling weeks at the hospital, Devin underwent the aggressive treatment that would bring this courageous young man back to life. Told from a mother's perspective, The Burning Truth reveals the heartache, courage, and strength of the Weckstein family in their search to help Devin; it ultimately proves the power of family, love, and the human spirit.
