A mother's moving tribute to her son and his courageous life-long battle with ill health. This is Barry's story, a story of a life lived to the full with humour, kindness and a quiet and dignified determination not to allow his illness to dominate all that he accomplished.

Patients, parents, siblings and friends will recognise and empathise with the range of emotions both Barry and his family experience as they follow the inescapable roller coaster ride that accompanies degenerative health issues and transplantation.

Grateful to the medical staff, who professionally and gently guide Barry through difficult and often painful medical treatments, this is nevertheless an informative and frank account of one person's experience of the Health Service from heady successes to heart-wrenching failures of the system.

Above all this is a story of love: a mother's love for her child, a family's love for a much cherished son, grandson and brother. and Barry's love for his family and for his beloved wife, Becky, a love that will endure through his memory.
