Jackson was the American Dream personified until her daughter, Ali, was diagnosed with Neuromyelitis Optica, a little understood, incurable, and often fatal autoimmune disease that can cause blindness, paralysis, and life-threatening seizures. At the age of 14, Ali was given a terrifying prognosis of four to six years to live. Told in alternating viewpoints, they narrate their very different journeys of coming to terms with the lack of control that neither mother nor daughter have over NMO, and their efforts to take their fight to a global level.
