My Little Drummer Boy is the unforgettable story of the tragic death of the author's 12-year-old son, a death the author later learned could have been prevented, if only his doctors had realized the risk he was in...a risk, she discovered, that was faced by hundreds of other children every year.
Rebecca Ellison Cole, an "ordinary housewife" with no medical training, confronted the entire medical establishment - from local doctors to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration - to help put warning labels on certain drugs and get approval for a chickenpox vaccine. Calling upon her abiding faith in God, Cole is relentless in perusing her goal.

"This book is written from the heart; the heart of a mother. Written simply and directly, it tells an amazing story; one that will move you - move you to sadness, to, ultimately , admiration. It is a book written not only for parents, or those who love children, but it is a book for anyone who cares about people, about life and about love.

Dr. John Connolly, Co-publisher, "America's Top Doctors"

"A moving account of a courageous mother who acted constructively following the death of her adored son from chickenpox. Her efforts to publicize the varicella vaccine, which was unlicensed by the FDA at the time, played a crucial role in the ultimate acceptance of the vaccine. Today this vaccine is routinely used to prevent chickenpox and its complications. All American parents and children are in her debt."

Anne A. Gershon, M.D., Professor of Pediatrics, Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons
