This book quite literally moved me to tears. In "Help! My Child Has Hashimoto’s" the author selflessly shares her experience from the early days of her child’s diagnosis through to the current day. She shares tools and resources to help families thrive in spite of this condition. Covering everything from doctor's appointments and medical testing to working with the education system. Yet "Help! My Child Has Hashimoto’s" is much more than a toolkit. It also provides emotional support from someone who knows EXACTLY what it means to live with Hashimoto’s. This is an important book and a must read for anyone dealing with a new hypothyroid diagnosis.

Cindy Kennedy's extraordinary book, Help! My Child Has Hashimoto's, opened my eyes wide to what it looks like, sounds like and feels like to be a parent of a child who has a long-term illness. She wrote with such grace, generosity and spectacular insight, this book will be and should be a must-read for all parents who have a child(ren) with Hashimoto's. But Ms. Kennedy's book actually transcends Hashimoto's disease. Her book, I believe, would be such a great benefit for any parent who just discovered their child has a long-term illness. The openness in which she tells her story, going into detail about what she learned overtime as the parent of her sick child(ren), the reality of the situation, and most importantly the hope she conveys, will surely be a comfort and a resource of amazing tips to help all parents like her make better sense of their new normal.


Everything you need to know, but never thought to ask...

  • What is Hashimoto's?
  • What are the signs and symptoms?
  • When to seek medical help
  • Paediatric reference ranges
  • How to work with your doctor, not against them
  • All the blood tests and what they mean for your child

​This book was well researched and extremely valuable. I'm a pharmacist, but didn't know much about this condition or what to tell parents. However, now I have an excellent reference for myself and parents of children who are affected by this.
