Publisher's Summary

When Mark McDonough was a teen, a catastrophic fire claimed the lives of his mother and younger brother. It also left Mark with burns on over 65 percent of his body. During a long and painful recovery, his faltering faith in God was strengthened by a remarkable near-death experience. Inspired to pursue a career as a plastic surgeon to help those who suffer as he has, McDonough has overcome numerous other adversities on his journey, including addiction and a stroke. Now he shares his incredible true story of survival and perseverance to bring hope and healing to those dealing with great physical and emotional pain.

Anyone who has suffered or watched a loved one suffer from a personal trauma, disease, or loss that has tested or stolen their faith and exhausted their emotional resources will find real hope in this redemptive story.

Faith and perseverance throughout all.

This book tells of a young life turned tragic, and continued issues throughout life-yet the author's strong will, and most importantly, his faith helps to carry him. It's not a goopy, religious story at all. Just a simple addition to the explanation of how he was able to sit with his feelings while he processed things that were happening.
I knew he was going to tell of his GBS before he said it as I had it too. Also, the MVP. Most of My family has it.
I wish the author well. I can't say enough about how much I admire the goal-setting, and the actual succeeding with life and death going on around him.
