About the Book

This book was written by multiple family members, from both the perspective of COVID-19 patients and non-patients. The stories outline four immediate family members who contracted COVID-19 simultaneously, during a time when the most aggressive strains were prevalent. It documents three very near-death experiences including comas and dream-like hallucinations and delusions. It follows them through their rehabilitation and salutes the dedicated healthcare workers who cared for them, an outstanding community outreach, and the love of family, friends, and coworkers during a time of intense stress and struggle. It shows the trials and the triumphs in their stories, and the miracles that led to their incredible survival.
