An inspiring true story.

Imagine waking up from a coma in a hospital bed and realizing that you're connected to three life support machines, unable to eat or speak and the entire left side of your body is paralyzed. Imagine seven months stuck in three hospitals and unable to go home. Five months without the ability to walk. Four months without the capacity to speak or shower. Three months without being able to eat real food.

That's what happened to Joseph Parenti, who was broadsided by a speeding, stolen car as he was driving his vehicle on December 5, 1988. His life was turned upside down in a few short tumultuous moments. Mr. Parenti suffered a traumatic brain injury and his heart stopped three times during the ambulance ride to the hospital. This book chronicles his gut-wrenching dramatic journey through a world of maddening medical incompetence and constant frustrations with the sudden severe deterioration of his physical health, as well as his emotional and painful physical recovery. Mr. Parenti's inspirational journey is a testament to the triumph of the human spirit.

This book would not have been possible if not for The West Hamilton Beach Volunteer Fire Department. Without their quick response and expert care, Joseph Parenti would not be alive today. To show his gratitude, a portion of his profits from the sale of this book will be donated to them.
