Dying Overcome


A non-fiction account of a stem cell transplant from beginning to end that sees the author almost die before he endures the rigors and barbarity of this new treatment that destroys his old immune system via intense chemo but leaves him with a brand new immune system that begins the long process of healing him from the life-threatening injuries he sustained from his rheumatoid arthritis called scleroderma. True, riveting and inspiring to learn firsthand of this revolutionary medical miracle that saved the author’s life, it is an unforgettable record of his journey from near death to recovery.


This is a record of the author’s stem cell treatment that saved his life. Riddled with rheumatoid arthritis that had spread to his esophagus and his lungs, and with a bad case of pneumonia, he goes to Ottawa for treatment but finds that he is too ill to survive the treatment that has a ten-percent mortality rate. Determined to survive, he perseveres and experiences what it is like to be at death’s door but also the magical reality of having his old immune system replaced by a healthy, new immune system that immediately heals his battered body. He was one of few to have had this extensive bone marrow transplant treatment and survive to tell the tale. Full of uncensored facts and written with clear language, this piece is valuable for both the interested reader as well as for those who will undergo this procedure…
