Review

Ask Me Why I Hurt tells the story of Arizona pediatrician Dr. Randy Christensen, who left his position at the Phoenix Children's Hospital in order to convert an ancient Winnebago into a mobile doctor's office.  The Crews'n Healthmobile​ travels around Phoenix, treating homeless teenagers and children.  Dr. Christensen and his team struggled to obtain funding and approval, and then with the tremendous medical needs of the area's youth-the staff does everything from removing insects from children's ears to treating children suffering the effects of tremendous abuse.  At one point, the van is taken across the country in order to serve those affected by Hurricane Katrina.

This fascinating memoir will open your eyes to the plight of homeless children, and inspire you with the doctor's dedication. I couldn't put it down!
