Grit, faith, medical marvels and swimming
Gaea Shaw has brought a very personal and physically challenging part of her life to us in her first book. Tightly written, Dying to Live gave me a sense of the difficulties of daily life she and other transplant recipients face. A daily life experience I so easily take for granted. I was humbled by Gaea's grace through the process and wept when the results of her swimming events were revealed. I highly recommend this book for those grappling with failing organs/health and waiting for a donor to read about a positive outcome....and, for the rest of us to understand how urgently organ and tissue donors are needed.Was this review helpful?

A compelling look at a heart transplant.
This book is a story about Faith, Love, Hope and determination. It shows how important it is to have family and friends join in the experience. Some unique groups are formed to help the family cope. Finally, the donor family is contacted.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

An Authenic Read
Gaea Shaw has written an authentic, inspiring, book. I found myself emotionally reviewing my own life while reading the experience of hers. There is wisdom in this book...the kind that's earned when confronted with a major life challenge. From a heart that was dying to a heart that is fully living, Gaea authentically shares herself and her family with the reader. Dying to Live: From Heart Transplant to Abundant Life is a good reminder that while much of life is out of our control, we can choose how we respond! I am buying 10 copies and offering them as gifs to my circle of girlfriends. Paulette MillanderWas this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
