Product Details


“A touching series of photos show what it’s like to raise children with rare genetic conditions, and how some of them have grown into talented swimmers and cheerleaders despite their symptoms. Photographer Karen Haberberg has captured the lives of 27 children who have rare genetic diseases. Those conditions affect one out of 10 Americans, but 95 percent of them do not currently have an FDA-approved drug treatment.” –Daily Mail

“In her new book, An Ordinary Day, acclaimed NYC photographer Karen Haberberg is spotlighting the little-seen world of families raising medically complex children. Though by definition a rare genetic disease is uncommon, these photos show just how ordinary life can still be in the midst of one.”

“This volume sheds light on the extraordinary and unique experiences that often get overlooked. It does so in the simplest way: by shining a light on the ordinary, everyday moments of those who seem, on the surface, to be unlike ourselves.” –Books For Better Living

“These photos provide an honest portrayal of what it means to be a family living with these challenges every day. Life, for all of us, is not only made up from the most inspirational and tragic points. It’s also of all the small moments in between: riding a swing set, facing off your dad for the last cookie.” –Patient Worthy
