Losing Larissa is the story of a young woman's struggle against an extremely rare, debilitating disease: Rasmussen's Encephalitis.
This is a true story told from a Mother's sad and broken heart. The effects this has, not only on her and her mother but on the rest of her family is unfathomable.
Her mother takes you alongside her on a roller coaster ride of highs and lows; giving you an insight into the hell of living with a child who has an incurable disease.
You will experience the full gamut of raw emotions; at times joy and hope to complete and utter devastation and finally the ultimate experience of grief and loss.
The ups and downs of the disease and the experiences with medical staff and institutions is a definite eye-opener.
Larissa’s determination and strength to fight this insidious opponent over many years was truly remarkable and is a story that needs to be told.
