James heard the words as they circled through his consciousness. “You have a disease that results in death”. The finality, the coldness, the abruptness that they were uttered took his breath away. What started as a day like any other had crumbled into a Greek tragedy. Thoughts of fear, self-loathing, and paranoia cascaded upon him.
Those callous words set him on a tumultuous journey of hope that was stymied at every turn by the corruption that ran deep within the pharmaceutical industry. Stonewalled and deceived, James is determined to fight through the obstacles thrown in front of him, regardless of the personal dangers he subjects himself and traveling consort to, a doctor from Italy that has left her practice and life behind.
James and his traveling partner pursue stem cell applications around the globe to combat his disease. But, the corruption that permeates the pharmaceutical world pushes them to their limits, until the final scene is played out at the conclusion of their journey before the world’s media.
Join them in this exciting journey through the darkness of greed, corruption and violence to seek a goal so precious. Join us on this journey of hope betrayed.
