Norman MacIsaac was alone on a cold December day when he received his worst news. At first, he didn’t know what to do with a prognosis of just a few years to live, growing more and more disabled until he could no longer move, swallow, or, in the end, breathe. Travel the world with the author in search of wisdom and inspiration, from the Himalayas to the slums of Mumbai, from his home in Montreal to the African savannah. Written over nearly five years, this is an authentic “live” look at the multiple and evolving challenges, the frustrations and unparalleled joy that mark living with a degenerative terminal illness.
