This inspirational story told by patient and author, John Amatuzio, about his long battle against Leukemia culminates a 20 year (and counting) journey of unimaginable proportions. As the patient, John was told that his type of Leukemia had never been successfully cured through bone-marrow transplantation using a non-related donor. The count worldwide was 0 for 20 and mounting at the time. With no other alternatives, John went through major testing, private investigator assistance, major turmoil and a donor materializing on the last possible evening in order to receive his transplant. Incredible bouts with faith and intense religious occurrences following the transplant finally led victory over defeat against insurmountable odds.
