My Daughter's Journey to the Correct Diagnosis

Lisa Benson is mom of a toddler who has eczema, therefore she lives in a world of special soaps and topical ointments, but also in a world of giggles, tantrums, book-reading, hand-clapping, dancing, snuggles, and food fights. She has been using her art and writing to share awareness about health conditions, including at Migraine.com, since 2014.
