Saving Zali is a mother's account of every parent's worst nightmare: a diagnosis of cancer with a shocking prognosis.

In 2009, Lisa and Andrew Venables were told that their eighteen-month-old daughter Zali had Langerhan's cell histiocytosis, or LCH, a cancer resistant to chemotherapy and almost impossible to treat. Zali was given six weeks to live.

It was the beginning of a journey of heartache and bravery as Zali battled daily for her life in Sydney's Westmead Hospital, with Lisa by her side at every step.

Although Zali survived her original prognosis, her condition worsened dramatically. Her medical team ran out of options. Lisa and Andrew were told their daughter had hours to live. But then a controversial treatment was proposed, a treatment never before used for Zali's condition. What happened next was a medical miracle that proved that the extraordinary is possible.

Heartfelt and beautifully told, this is the story of medical dedication, a child's tenacity and a mother's love.
