Purchase Death Defied, Life Defined by Paul E. Perkins


"Days and weeks turned into months of serious infection. My body was worn out from resisting. It seemed like I’d never feel good again. My mind was exhausted from clinging to hope when things looked hopeless. I’d had enough.


When I was in the hospital, shortly after my surgery, a couple of doctors tried to prepare me for the worst. But I refused to listen to their bleak prognosis. Now, in the privacy of my own haunted thoughts, I wondered if they had been right."
