Product Description


'Andy has had a major stroke in the brain stem, the control centre of the brain. This has left him with Locked-in syndrome which means his entire body has shut down, but the cognitive part of his brain is undamaged. He retains all his knowledge, understanding and intellect; his personality and character are unchanged and he knows exactly what has happened. His condition is critical and, if he survives, the Locked-in syndrome means he is unlikely to be able to live any form of independent life again, totally dependent on others for everything. In which case Andy may not wish to go on...' Thirty-three years old, happily married to a lovely wife, a great job in dentistry, a strong Christian seemed just about perfect for Andy Davies. But then, shockingly, Andy suffered a massive stroke, leaving him with 'Locked-in syndrome'. Paralysed and only able to communicate by a series of blinks, Andy's life, and that of his family, was changed forever. 'A compelling and challenging account of one of the most challenging disabilities any human being can experience that is written with honesty vulnerability and extraordinary courage. It is the triumph of faith over fear.

One of the most moving and inspiring stories I have ever read.'John Glass, General Superintendent of Elim Pentecostal Churches. 'People throw the term 'inspirational' around a lot these days but Andy's story defies all expectations. He has not only strived to live a full life but gone above and beyond, seeking out opportunities to fundraise for the freedom of human trafficking victims. If you get the chance you should definitely give this a read.'Ben Cooley, CEO Hope for Justice
