Dr. Lisa Thornton
founder Pediatric and Adolescent Rehabilitation for KidsRehab at the Schwab Rehabilitation Hospital
As an assistant professor at the University of Chicago, Dr. Thornton appeared on CBS, CNN, ABC, Good Morning America, the Dr. Oz Show, the Today Show and the Steve Harvey Show. But her own publicity did not suffice to promote the stories of her patients-turned-friends.
When she was ready to present a more intimate portrait of the children behind the disabilities, and teach the rest of us how to enjoy them on their terms, she contracted me to write and pitch her book proposal.
