There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
I was a little puzzled when I read the medications Andrew was getting intravenously. I am sure it was a mistake? Of the 4 drugs listed, Viagra was 1 of them. I had to read it twice. Was this correct?
I wanted so badly to skip to the end to make sure Andrew made it. There were a few times I kept saying to myself, oh no! This is it..... but I didn't and I am glad.
I hope Andrew continues to heal and grow stronger, and that life has returned to some sense of normalcy. I wish the best for you both. Congrats on the new baby!! I really liked the pictures at the end! Thank you for sharing your story!
Top reviews from other countries
Throughout the book we are reminded how fragile life is – Lauren and Andrew experienced a roller-coaster of terrifying situations (unfortunately more downs than ups so you’ll certainly need a box of tissues to hand).
We live in a country where we take health care for granted and although I’m aware that few countries benefit from a system such as ours, it came as a horrific shock that unless there is a guarantee of payment, doctors refuse to treat patients so many people die as a result.
All through the book there are many acts of kindness from family, friends and strangers (hence the title) and it renews one’s faith in human nature.
The story is full of courage, love, despair, hope and strength.
I have never written a review before . But wanted to after reading this amazing story.
Please don't opt . Be a donor
The change in law is the best thing that has happened in years and unfortunately Covid has slowed that advancement at the moment.
Most importantly is the conversation between families about organ donation.
The families I have known who have bravely said yes, have such a comfort knowing that their relative has donated corneas, kidneys, lungs, hearts and even skin to those that needed them.
To these families I say thank you for your bravery and courage.
