About the Book

The informative, intimate, emotionally compelling, sometimes hilarious, yet inspiring and encouraging account of one man’s miraculous heart transplant and traumatic near-death experiences, before, during and following six crippling heart attacks, and three open heart surgeries.

Four times he was clinically dead – flat line.

You will LAUGH, you will CRY and you will LEARN more about the personal side of heart transplants and organ donation than you ever could have imagined.

A must-read if you or someone you know is waiting for or considering a heart or other organ transplant.    Learn what is involved and what it all means from the perspective of one man and his family who have “been there and done that.”
