Death Sentence from a Doctor The words seemed to fall from her lips like they were encased in lead, " You only have eight months to live." At first, I could not believe what I was hearing. It was like I was having a nightmare, without being asleep. The Doctor went on, "You will need a liver transplant, and extensive drug therapy." What? After the initial shock wore down some, I rejected this option. No! I refused to become yet another statistic. Hepatitis C was doing it's dreaded best to suck the life blood right out of me, yet I was not going to have it. In our youth, we all seem to have a way of convincing ourselves that we are bullet proof, and that things like this "did not happen to us." Yet here I was, surrounded by Doctors and nurses, all looking at me like I was but an inscription on a headstone. Things like this have a way of shaking us to the very core of our foundation. I was shook. One of the most powerful elements in my total recovery, was my determination. I would not give up the hope, that somehow I would look back on this day and think, "the Devil swung at me, and missed." We all have choices to make in everyday life. I chose to live and not die young. You too, have the same choice. Humans have an in-born desire to continue living, even when facing incredible odds. I used this desire to fuel my determination to beat this. Learn what I did, and how I did it. The purpose of this book, is to share with others the exact things I did, and how I did them. Build a fire within yourself, use that fire to do something positive. Today my Doctors are amazed to find that I now have the liver of a twenty-year old!
