Mark Westley and his wife, Dianne raised their six children
on a charming country property. The Westleys were a typical, close-knit family who enjoyed happy, healthy
lives - until the day eleven-year-old Sarah was struck down by a severe mystery illness. Sarah’s parents
rushed her to several small country hospitals in search of help. Yet before adequate tests had been
performed, doctors announced that Sarah was pregnant - an outrageous misdiagnosis that triggered a
devastating chain of events for the family. It was only when Sarah was finally transferred to a large
teaching hospital that doctors discovered the true diagnosis: a rare condition they had never seen before…and
wanted to study.
When Mark and Dianne asked the usual questions about their
daughter’s treatment, doctors stonewalled them. Unable to penetrate the strange medical secrecy surrounding
Sarah’s case, her parents set out on their own to find the best treatment available for their daughter.
However, two of Sarah’s doctors had other ideas, and summoned the help of a government department with police
powers to force their will on the young girl. The unsuspecting family suddenly found themselves up against a
powerful industry and an utterly ruthless state system. Nothing could have prepared them for the horrors they
would have to face…
A chilling glimpse into the dark side of health
The true story of a brave young girl claiming her right to
live and die with dignity.
...and a few heroic health professionals who put
everything on the line to help her.
