Joy and Suffering: My Life with ALS | [Martin J. D'Amore, MD]

Joy and Suffering: My Life with ALS

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.

    "Great book beautifully told"

    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!
