About the Book

Life is filled with struggles that we often times cannot overcome alone. This book is filled with the inspiration of the human spirit. Not just the human spirit of one young man overcoming the odds, but a journey in which a family, its friend and a community help a young man to have the courage to fight back. Not to overcome or to win, but to fight back and become what he now can be. This is the story of one young man’s yearlong battle with an illness that will change his life forever. Now 26, Matt Deal has continued his battle, graduating from college, entering into marriage, and pursuing a career.

About the Author

Dan Deal is the father of three young sons, Matthew, Christopher and Andrew. He and his wife Janet have been married for twenty-five years. He began this story in the waiting room of the Mayo Clinic as a chronicle of his son’s struggles with an autoimmune disorder that ravaged his nervous system after a bout with mononucleosis. Dan writes about his son Matt’s courage and about his friends and a community that gave their family the courage to go on. This story is about the courage all of us have to overcome life’s obstacles one step at a time.
