Overview

When Vincent Mele received word that surgery was inevitable and a hospital stay was necessary, his family's concern quickly shifted from the operation performed to the germs that had begun to attack, and the very facility that was designed to help save Vincent's life would instead soon horrifically take it. Read how vulnerable we all are with Julia Nora Pilas' true account of life, and the hopeless fight for a loved one's survival.

Soon after Vincent was diagnosed with an aneurysm, his family wasted no time in selecting a surgeon whose reputation had to be impeccable and expertise and talents undeniable. Certainly, his resume spoke for itself, but did they need to know his principles, should they have been concerned with his morals, and did he have a conscience? These were questions they didn't know needed answered until it was too late!

Although the success of the operation had brought relief to Vincent's family, unfortunately by day three the infections that began to ravage his body quickly turned him into a pin cushion and human incubator for germs to grow, fester, and eventually kill. Germs that hold no prejudice - it will not matter if you are young or old, rich or poor, famous or not, if you are unfortunate enough to be admitted into a hospital you will be just as much at risk of contracting an infection as was Vincent.

In this touching chronicle, let this story capture your heart and open your mind and than let yourself be the judge. Together let's hope that someone will finally listen, someone will finally take responsibility, and someone will finally change what is so drastically wrong with our hospitals today.

"On The Street Where You Live" will open your eyes and capture your heart. It is a true story of the love two people had for one another, the lives they created together, and the ending they didn't deserve. An ending so horrific; yet could have been avoided; had they been more aware of the dangers that lurk within the walls of our hospitals today. A book that everyone should read for awareness in order to survive a hospital stay. I loved the book. At times it was so heartwrenching I had to put it down to compose myself yet at times I had to keep reading because I couldn't bring myself to stop. It certainly does open your eyes and has definitely educated me and made me alot more aware of a very important topic. Hopefully this book will open the eyes of those who could make the chances that are needed.
