Synopsis

When Kirsty Jayne Pearce was born—full term—on February 22, 1986, she weighed just three pounds, twelve ounces. A fighter, Kirsty survived, but she was destined to experience a lifetime of an array of medical issues until her untimely death when she was seventeen years old.

In this memoir, Kirsty’s father, Charles Pearce, tells her story of courage and stubbornness—of her birth in 1986; her baby, toddler, and adolescent years; her loving relationship with her mother, Peggy, father Charles, and her brother Tim; her unnecessary death in August of 2003; and the events that followed her passing. In Kirsty, Charles seeks justice for his daughter, who, he believes, died as a result of inadequate medical care.

Kirsty provides a loving remembrance of a girl who suffered much pain in her young life, but who was honest, funny, and brave. More than that, it shows how life can change drastically without warning.
