Next morning, still wobbly. He stared at his face in the mirror and splashed it with cold water, thinking it would soon go away.

THIS CANNOT BE REAL
“You have a cyst on your brain stem”. The neurologist informed him. He felt frozen at that moment. “It is located on a dangerous site we do not operate due to the risk involved” The doctor continued. But a million questions were rushing through his mind.

Reviews for the Book
This is not normally the type of book I would read but WOW I'm so glad I did. Your story brought tears to my eyes and your journey has been amazing. -Charlie Bell, Author of Your Most Amazing Day Yet ★★★★★ For the readers, this is a must read since it will provide a different perspective than most books, telling a story like untold before. --Anonymous ★★★★★ The reader will feel each moment of frustration when he fails and joy when he finally takes those first steps. The author's message is simple: find what motivates you, learn to accept changes will take time, and do not be afraid to push your body. --Judy K ★★★★★ The unique selling point of this book is the author himself. "How can you write an article about relearning to walk if you have never relearned to walk?" Nothing in this book is based on research done in lab conditions by people who don't know what it feels like to be in a wheelchair. Everything mentioned in the book is something that Siofer has personally gone through, tried, and tested. --Literary Titan ★★★★★
