              Will to Live (Paperback)

              By Ames, Diane; Ames, Matthew

              This is a remarkable story. It will change the way you look at life. For a couple of weeks, Matthew Ames didn't feel well. The busy father of four young children knew things were not quite right but suddenly he was in Emergency, with a severe case of toxic shock syndrome. He was ...put into an induced coma and the only way he could be kept alive was to have all his limbs amputated. Diane Ames knew exactly what her husband would want and that he would cope - he had always been optimistic and practical. Despite a one per cent chance of survival, she asked the doctors to go ahead with the radical operation. And so began the inspiring story of an ordinary family's courage and determination to make the most of a terrible situation. Matthew has astounded doctors with his adaptation to a new way of living, so much so that he is about to become a bionic man. And he has never once questioned Diane's decision - it gave him the chance to truly understand how much family matters and to appreciate humanity. 'Moving and inspiring.' Glastone Observer
