Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0952605678, Paperback)

Fly with a Miracle, a gripping biography written in lively style, is the enthralling true story of Andrew’s passionate battle for survival from cancer and his determination to become a pilot. A revolutionary new treatment pioneered by the dedicated medical team at the London Middlesex Hospital, together with Andrew Belshaw’s adventurous pursuit of his dreams, are highlighted in graphic detail. Sheila Belshaw’s riveting literary style makes you think you are right there, experiencing it!

Andrew's experiences read like a thriller. Powerfully written, his story holds the reader spellbound from beginning to end to discover the answers. Is his leg saved? Does he live or die? Does he find love? And does he learn to fly? Thrills and spills, graphic descriptions of life in England and Zambia.

The story of his shining spirit and his determination to achieve his dreams and optimise his health, is an inspiration to all who have been touched by cancer. The importance of support from people around him is an example to those who have friends and family going through the same ordeal.

Fly with a Miracle provides invaluable feedback for patients undergoing treatment for cancer, as well as for their family and friends. The medical and healthcare professions also have remarked on the essential feedback that the story has provided for them.

Although the book offers hope and courage and is written by established author, Sheila Belshaw, who is herself the mother of the patient, it is also a great read for the general public and will keep people on the edge of their seats whilst the astonishing story unfolds!

The Foreword is written by Mr Justin P Cobb, MCh FRCS, Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon, at The Middlesex Hospital, London, where the operation was first pioneered by Sir Rodney Sweetnam. The book has been edited with the help of the medical team who took part in the revolutionary treatment, which pointed the way forward for Andrew.
