This is an extremely well written and insightful account of Daniel's life, the awful illness that was to take his life, and his father's fight to research and explore any treatment avenue possible, not leaving any stone unturned. As a parent I can't imagine the strength of character that this took and is a real inspiration.
I very much enjoyed hearing about Daniel's considerable achievements in the face of adversity and I found the details of his treatment both informative and interesting. I think throughout life we are conditioned to accept whatever doctors tell us in deference to their superior knowledge, when in fact there are at any one time a multitude of other treatment options and possibilities of clinical trials. This is not a criticism of the medical profession - obviously there are time and budgetary constraints in the face of ever increasing demand - but the author reminds us that we all have a duty to take responsibility for our own lives and those we care for in addition to the support offered by our doctors.
Overall an interesting, informative and emotional read.
There is great courage, as the author lays out his emotions, including a transcript of the eulogy he gave for Daniel and an account of the ways he has coped with his own grief. It will be a helpful book for others - there’s even a step-by-step section on how to ensure the best treatment is secured for cancer patients. Ultimately, however, I think it is the message that the author conveys about how privileged he felt to be Daniel’s father, and the lengths he went to, to try to make a difference, that carries the greatest weight.
