More Than You Can Handle with author Miguel Sancho on Zoom
Wednesday, June 9th at 7:00 pm. The Larchmont and Mamaroneck Public Libraries invites you to join Miguel Sancho, author of More Than You can Handle. The personally harrowing and medically enthralling story of a family’s struggle to save a child from a deadly immune deficiency. When a two-month-old baby falls ill, his apparently ordinary symptoms turn out to signal a rare and lethal immune deficiency. For parents Miguel Sancho and Felicia Morton, the discovery that their son, Sebastian, has chronic granulomatous disease (CGD) upends their lives and leaves the family with few options, all of them terrifying. With Sebastian at constant risk of deadly infection, they spend the next six years in some degree of self-quarantine, with all its attendant anxieties and stressors, as they struggle to keep their son alive, their marriage intact, and themselves sane.
Miguel Sancho is an Emmy Award-winning television producer currently show-running and developing series and specials for A&E. For seven years he helped run the ABC primetime news magazine 20/20. Prior to that, he was an investigative producer at 20/20 and CBS News’s 48 Hours. He lives in Larchmont, New York with his wife, Felicia Morton, and their two children, Lydia and Sebastian.
