Over the last few months I had come across excerpt of The Road To Transplant, so I knew, when the book opened before me, that I was in for a special treat in terms of the quality of writing. I also sensed that I would be witnessing an amazing life journey, because it is not every day you get to be there with a man fighting, literally, for his life. What I failed to anticipate is the profound impact this book would have on me.

As every day is precious when on the verge of death, Brian M. Hayden keeps a diary of sorts through the entries on his blog, which provides a structure and a reference for the Road To Transplant. Some people who suffer through similar health challenges tend to isolate themselves from others, because pain is a hard thing to share. What I find especially endearing is the way he views his journey as not his alone. In his words from the Preface, "We will all throw these balls up in the air, and with help from our friends and family, a little faith, and God's help, we will keep these balls from falling."

This is a truly special book. Five stars. ( )
