An inspiring true story.
Imagine seven months stuck in three hospitals and unable to go home. Five months without the ability to walk. Four months without the capacity to speak or shower. Three months without being able to eat real food.
This is what happened to Joseph Parenti, who was broadsided by a speeding, stolen car as he was driving his vehicle on December 5, 1988. His life was turned upside down in a few short tumultuous moments. Mr. Parenti suffered a traumatic brain injury and his heart stopped three times during the ambulance ride to the hospital. This book chronicles his gut-wrenching dramatic journey through a world of maddening medical incompetence and constant frustrations with the sudden severe deterioration of his physical health, as well as his emotional and painful physical recovery. Mr. Parenti's inspirational journey is a testament to the triumph of the human spirit.
This book would not have been possible if not for The West Hamilton Beach Volunteer Fire Department. Without their quick response and expert care, Joseph Parenti would not be alive today. To show his gratitude, a portion of his profits from the sale of this book will be donated to them.
This is a true story which makes you feel like your living every second with Author. I became captivated with this book right from the start. It really makes you think not to take things for granted. We all have had challenges in our lives but the author has more than most. His ability to rise above each of these should be an inspiration to us all. I would like to thank Joseph Parenti for sharing his story with us in this book! May God bless him and his amazing family and friends!!
