A BREATH OF HOPE, (American Bar Association Publishers, 2012) illustrated by Chuck Galey, focuses on the plight of a young girl suffering with asthma because of a landlord's neglect of her apartment which is contaminated with mold. Torn between being evicted and the heath of their daughter, the family is connected to a Medical Legal Partner at the hospital who helps them confront the landlord and get needed repairs.
