When their child was born, Mihdi Joon’s parents were told to make him comfortable as it was doubtful he would live to a double-digit age. Refusing to take the advice of medical professionals who had essentially put an expiration date on their son, the parents hit the road in search of a cure.
The father and son crossed North America numerous times in search of a solution. “The Photographic Story of Mihdi Joon and the Mission to Save a Child’s Life” chronicles the various alternatives they found.
