Summer in the Waiting Room: How Faith, Family, and Friends Saved My Life is a story about love, faith, and hope.

It’s the unique and inspiring story of a boy who grew up in a working-class neighborhood, flunked out of college, and lost hope. He put his life back together, married the love of his life, returned to his studies and graduated from college. Together they raised a family, and he found success in his career and in public office.

It’s also the story of a man who vowed never to fail again and worked tirelessly to redeem himself. Despite a seemingly perfect life, redemption remained elusive. After a life-changing event, he found true redemption while in a state of complete helplessness in the ICU through the power of faith, family, and friends.
