When the indomitable Suzan tumbled to the ground, so did her world—a world of endless high-paced activities as a hotel sales executive. The struggle through terrible times became their shared, heartrending story. It tells us much about love triumphing over adversity, aided and abetted by medical magicians. Although they had never heard of Guillain-Barré syndrome until it struck like wicked lightning, this book follows their journey to make as complete recovery as possible. Through Suzan and John’s words of candor and humor, readers become conversant with this little-known, uncaring, and improbable disease.
This book is about unlikely survival, the revitalization of life for two people, and their sharing hard-won knowledge to ease the journey of others. It shows that even with daunting odds against recovery, it is possible to recover to inspire others facing this terrible disease.
