This memoir of a boy’s illness and recovery through the healing power of music is “a riveting chronicle of achievement against the odds” (Kirkus Reviews).
Daniel Trush was still a child when an aneurysm erupted in his brain, causing massive bleeding and leaving him comatose. Doctors told his parents there was little hope he would survive. But Daniel beat all the odds, and in just a month he awakened from his coma. A decade later, he walked the New York City Marathon. His path to recovery certainly wasn’t easy. But one factor—music—stood out as the driving factor in his rehabilitation, beginning with his father singing along with favorites played on a boombox at his bedside.
The Trush family started Daniel’s Music Foundation, a nonprofit dedicated to providing music education for the disabled. Honored on a Broadway stage and an inspiration to people everywhere, DMF transformed one family’s incredible struggle into a force that heals others.
