Winner of Best Biography/Autobiography at the 2010 Best in International Publishing Paris Book Festival!

This is the story of a man's fight for life, battling psychotic episodes resulting from a rare genetic disease. Dendy, a bright, energetic young man, found himself suffering from neurological tremors and psychosis, the result of a genetic disease that had concealed itself during the first two and a half decades of his life. The neurological and psychological manifestations of Wilson's disease were the result of years of toxic copper buildup in the basal ganglia of the brain. Additionally, the toxic levels of copper caused stage IV cirrhosis of his liver. In his book, Dendy recounts the numerous times in his life in which angels have delivered him. And through these happenings, Dendy says his faith has been strengthened bringing him closer and closer to his Creator.
