Road to Transplant by Brian M. Hayden chronicles on man’s journey toward getting a hew heart. Hayden openly discusses his thoughts and fears living with a chronic disease – heart failure. His only hope is a heart transplant, but fewer people are acting as donors. The wait seems endless.
In earlier book, Death & Living to Talk About It, Hayden tells readers what brought him to this place in his life. He doesn’t sugar coat or make excuses. In fact, he urges readers not to make the poor life choices he has.
The Road to Transplant is a wonderfully informative, fascinating book that clearly explains different medical terms so that readers can get the most from the book.
I found the book informative, interesting and emotional as Brian leads his readers down the road with him and his wonderful wife, Denise. Even after a transplant, the road continues to be a rough one. But with the love and support of his friends and family, Brian has survived.
This book should be suggested reading for anyone facing a chronic illness. It should also be read by anyone whose lifestyle threatens their health.
