Martin D'Amore and his wife are both physicians, so when they began to notice possible ALS symptoms in Marty, they desperately looked for other causes. But after many tests and meetings with experts, Marty finally got the word, he had Lou Gehrig's disease, and the clock began to tick.
ALS robs its victims of their physical abilities, from their muscular activity, to their nervous system, and, finally, their ability to even breathe. All the while, the mind remains intact. It is a brutal, often soul-crushing disease, and yet Marty has persevered and even grown as a result of ALS. Discover how Marty's battle with ALS has led him to a greater relationship with Christ, a better understanding of himself, and, finally, to great contentment and happiness.
Whether or not you or someone you love is battling ALS, this inspiring true story of love and courage will help you find joy through your sufferings.

I was very moved by Marty's story especially because it was delivered with such clarity and depth by the narrator. For anyone who is dealing with a life threatening illness or has a family member or friend going through great suffering Marty's story is both encouraging and inspiring. I highly recommend this book and most especially enjoyed listening to it. Hearing a story like this is especially impactful as you feel Marty himself is speaking to you!
The narrator brought to life this astounding story
As the story gets to the point when on a ventilator and confined to the wheelchair, the narrator expresses the turmoil and and heart wrench between the ease of ending it all and the benefit of his children witnessing the nobility in suffering.
every page/recording was moving.
