Nick Trout is a surgeon at the Angell Animal Medical Center and a New York Times best-selling author. He's written six books, and his latest, called "The Wonder Of Lost Causes," focuses on a story very close to home for him.
It's about a mother raising a child with cystic fibrosis, and what happens when the family decides to adopt a dog. Trout has a daughter with cystic fibrosis.
We speak with him about finding inspiration in his own experiences as a parent and how CF is represented in books and popular culture.
