Marie Killilea brings us more of the courage, love, and faith she showed in "Karen" - and all the more powerfully, for not only the disabled Karen but the profoundly Catholic Gloria are the heroines of this book. The love for life and rich humour that both had, despite the heartbreak of their situations, is powerful. I believe she passed away in the 1980's. I would love to know what happened to this whole family; these books partly inspired me to become a nurse. imagine not allowing a CP child in school, as was Karen's situation!

A wonderful story of human courage, patience, and triumph.

MacKayla Lane’s life is good. Evil is bad that believes it’s good. MacKayla Lane was just a child when she and her sister, Alina, were given up for adoption and banished from Ireland forever. Twenty years later, Alina is dead and Mac has returned to the country that expelled them to hunt her sister’s murderer.

Marie Killilea is the author of two bestselling books, Karen and With Love from Karen. In 1940, Marie’s daughter Karen was born three months premature, measuring only nine inches and weighing less than two pounds. It would take years for doctors to diagnose her with cerebral palsy, and even more to find proper treatment. When the family was told that they should put her in an asylum and forget about her, which was what many others did at the time, they refused and instead took on the daunting challenge of treating her at home

A mother tells how she and the rest of her family raise her child who has cerebral palsy

I first read this book when I was about 12 years old. I was enthralled. At the time, I had 7 siblings, 6 of whom were born prematurely, one, born in 1957, was smaller than Karen had been when she was born 3 months early, weighing 2 lbs. None of my siblings had cerebral palsy or any of the other problems associated with prematurity, all were quite bright. When I read Karen that first time I realized how lucky our family had been in that regard. By the end of the book, I realized how lucky Karen had been to have a family who would all fight for her so. She was lucky that through their persistence, she was treated by a doctor and therapist who understood cerebral palsy, knew how to treat it, and saw Karen as a whole person with other needs besides the physical. As a result of those issues and Karen's own willingness to suffer the pains of her therapies, her determination to be independent, that Karen developed into a whole person, not a cripple. Thanks to Karen's family, other families with CP children, experts in the field, and people just concerned with seeing that children, and adults, afflicted with CP receiving all of the treatments they needed so they could reach their optimal development. Much of this was made possible through the efforts of United Cerebral Palsy.
Later, after two more brothers were born prematurely but well, I became a nurse in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (just a Premie Room when they were born and when I started working) where my siblings were cared for. My family ily history, though relatively benign, had sensitized me to many issues faced by families of premature or otherwise compromised newborns faced. Now parents have almost instant access to their babies, and siblings can visit too. I feel these issues encourage the type of attachment. Karen's family had naturally. Sadly, some of the babies I cared for go home with severe afflictions, but today the family is referred to specialized care clinics, where there needs are seen to. In this country, most families have to face the delay in diagnosis and treatment, the long search for the right specialist Karen's parents faced. Thank you Killeallas and others, thank you UCP.

I read this book as a teenager and still have the paperbacks but wanted it on Kindle. Thus I read it again. This is the second party of the Karen Killilea story. Karen was born in 1940 3 months premature. She almost died several times as an infant. As the result probably of her early birth she has cerebral palsy of the spastic type which made her body inflexible. That she learned to walk was a miracle. The faith of Karen and her family are heartwarming. I read this book first as a Protestant and then later as a Catholic and although I loved it as a Protestant - I got so much more reading it as a Catholic. And let me add this Karen was born for a very special reason. Her parents started the CP foundation, in a time where such children were "put away" (institutionalized). Great book!!

This book was written based on a true story. It took place after WWII. The only known therapy for treating CP was a course of daily patterning which relied on many volunteers. I heard of this treatment in 1980 when my son was diagnosed. The child's mother worked tirelessly to help her child talk, walk with crutches and write. School was not available for this child back then. The mother researched, found the best doctors and helped gather other families with children inflicted with CP to establish the organization we now know to be the United Cerebral Palsy Association.

Just as relevant now as when it was written. The amount of work Marie Killilea put into her daughters therapy and raising awareness for Cerebral Palsy all while continuing to raise 3 other children and keep up her household is amazing. This was in tge 1940s when most people who had severely handicapped children found it almost impossible to get an education or any kind of physical therapy for them. They were advised more than once to have Karen put in an institution and forget about her. Truly inspiring.

This is a wonderful story about a premature baby who has CP and how she grew up and learning to handle this disability. And proving you can pull through despite the odds against you. Her parents fought hard for her and others with CP bringing awareness to this disability when all the people of this world said they never would amount to anything so let's institutionalize these kids. Well Karen's family proved them wrong.

This is a profoundly moving book - the biography of a child afflicted by cerebral palsy who was born in an era when it was a little-understood disease with almost no treatment options or support groups. On the contrary, many people were repulsed by what they considered a dirty or degenerate condition. Written by her mother, this is a lively and engaging account of the family's experience, from discouragement to hope to triumph, all anchored by a deep religious faith that shines through. You don't have to be a devout Catholic to find this a profoundly inspirational story. Karen herself is no saint; her humor, intelligence and inner strength reveal a person of great value, even as a very young child. I have re-read this book many times over the past 45 years and it has never failed to enlighten and uplift me.

I bought Karen for my great niece because she loves to read. I think, having read it myself many times (starting in grade school) that it is one of the most inspirational book a young person can read. There are many lessons to be learned from Karen--how everyone has hardships they have to struggle with, how a positive other-centered attitude helps everyone, and most of all, how everyone can, as Karen said "do anything". The basis of her life, her faith in Christ, is her inspiration and her family's guide. This book is exceptional and my great niece loved it, even though she does not share Karen's faith. Don't miss this one.
