Overview

This is a story of the sacred relationship between a father and his son-and the will to live. In this very moving true account, Tyrus Anthony Wong shares the intense, extraordinary, and most private and intimate moments of his father's twenty-three life-saving surgeries and medical procedures through eighteen years from 1990 to 2008. Through sixteen documented diseases, fourteen daily prescription medications, life-threatening diabetes and congestive heart failure, Ty's father James Anthony Wong embraced his life every second and with an infectious smile. This is the inspiring collective journey of a classic family: a loving wife of forty-one years, a son who is his father's best friend and co-confidant, and the amazing man who keeps fighting. Crisis after crisis, they lean upon each other, with resilience and joyful hearts. Their spirits are made stronger through their love of one another-reaching far beyond the bonds of this world. "Life. It all starts with your parents, and it never ends! As heart-wrenching as it was to write this, it had to be done, and in this manner. I hope over time, it is embraced for helping people to come closer together." - Tyrus Anthony Wong; #1 son and author

    On behalf of my father, from my heart and soul, I offer to you all, this great account. My father died one fateful morning but now he lives on, forever! See and read about his infectious smile and true warrior spirit!

    052111: I have just returned from a tribute golf trip, retracing every step my father and I took during our May 2008 time together in Albuquerque, N.M. . Totally distracted and almost obsessed with tracing our former steps together, this time was very special and somewhat healing for me. I'll NEVER fully recover from my father's passing but my solemn commitment to him as he was passing away was simply to be the old man that he and my mother would likely only recognize, God willing. I hope you will review and consider this great resource because I wrote it with the full intention of bringing light to these issues that so many of us face. There are many tributes to all peoples throughout, including a translation of the title in (43) different languages...you'll read why there are forty-three because that was done on purpose. There are other tributes that I would be so honored to hear from readers that they have discovered in this ultimately emotional and solemn account. UPDATE - 052111: I'm working on the eBook versions of this account right now. They will be in full color with the same images shared, except in color so they represent even better than in print. Still, there's something VERY special about a printed book so I hope you will embrace it first and consider the eBook versions as a great resource to keep and share everywhere, with everyone you know :) I am also hard at work writing a new fictional quadrilogy, also fully inspired by the times my father and I shared :) It is being geared for the high school reader to revitalize them into reading something unique, fun, inspiring, historic, and challenging... :) . Evolution and history are forever changed!... I have many other writing projects on tap as well so I hope you'll stay in touch with me as to their progress. Again, thanks for considering my father's account. It's the first book ever signed in DNA; my fingerprint is on every copy :) From me, my mother, and the entire WONG family worldwide, I thank you! God Bless you!
