About this item

On August 9, 1963, the infant son of John and Jacqueline Kennedy, born premature at 34 weeks, died of a common lung ailment after 39 hours of life. This book tells, for the very first time, the entire story of those tense and desperate days from the viewpoint of Patrick’s pediatrician and the team of doctors who tried to save him. It also chronicles the captivating history of newborn care and the way the death of the Kennedy baby, faced by his heartbroken parents with consummate courage and grace, triggered a worldwide medical response that ultimately led to major advances in newborn care that have saved the lives of millions of infants.
