Daniel, My Son tells the story of Daniel’s illness and the rollercoaster of emotions which accompanied it, for both Daniel and his family. It tells how he developed coping mechanisms to enable him to live life to the full, within the constraints imposed by his cancer and the brutal treatment he had to undergo. It tells how he faced his mortality at far too young an age.
But it is so much more than a biography of this amazing young man.
I am Daniel’s father and a passionate believer that humankind must learn from lessons forged in adversity. The book illustrates all that I learnt during five and a half amazing years, and the years of grief which have followed.
Emphasising the importance of creativity and hope for those suffering with life-threatening illnesses, the book suggests how to advocate and research for a seriously ill child. Whether you are a doctor or a parent, or simply someone ready to be moved by the human spirit at its most inspiring, so many have said that Daniel, My Son is a rewarding read - a powerful story of the human family at its best. The book exemplifies the importance of humanity coming together and helping each other as we traverse life’s rocky terrain.
