A Life Terminal from the Author: Jane Doe. A Life Terminal is a novel in the medical setting, which follows the comical escapades of characters from vastly different worlds. They range from the eccentric walks of life - a senior citizen prostitute to an austere billionaire - to the very ordinary. We share in their joy and grief, courage and foolishness, as they putter through the clutter of everyday life, cope with grotesque rules, and eventually hurtle toward their inevitable fates. As in life, some of these characters disappear from view following a brief random encounter; others become integral players in the story. They travel separate haphazard journeys but, as they navigate together through the illogical hurdles of our healthcare system, their lives become oddly intertwined. Beneath their differences, they share common hopes, fears and vulnerabilities, living out the same story over and over again. Jane Doe was an ordinary person born into an average family. She grew up in a small town in a working class neighborhood. Odd circumstances brought her into the city, where she started a new life. She became a doctor, which gave her the opportunity to enter the worlds of people from diverse backgrounds, of various stations of life. She was allowed to share with them some of their innermost thoughts and most difficult moments. Inspired by their common plight, she wrote a book A Life Terminal. Then she disappeared into the obscurity from whence she came.

Terminal Life from the Author: Richard Torregrossa. Luke Stark, a Special Forces veteran, returns home from his second tour in Afghanistan to learn that his wife has been mysteriously murdered and his son has disappeared. These tragedies, in addition to suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder, push him over the edge. He has also been diagnosed with an incipient form of cancer, but he forgoes treatment, a decision that is akin to a slow suicide. Although he lives in a shelter, he wears an impeccable suit, an eccentric characteristic that sets him apart from his fellow down-and-outers and just about everybody else. He is nicknamed, somewhat ironically, The Suited Hero. Revenge and the search for his son spark a kind of rebirth in him that is as cathartic as it is brutal. This leads him into the dangerous world of illegal prescription drug distribution, where nobody in this gripping mystery crime thriller— not even some family members—is who they appear to be.

The book is sometimes sad, but most times amusing and incredibly practical. Making a will, planning your funeral, telling your friends is all covered here, not to mention advanced directives and that all important bucket list.

Jesus Author Of My Life from the Author: Stellah Mupanduki. It is a book about hope for terminal illness that comes from the power that is higher than everything.It brings people closer to God,to be able to communicate in trust with him in everything. It takes away humiliation of death that comes from terminal illness; it brings hope to those who have lost it because of troubles. It will bring healing, mend brokenness, and bring wholeness in families and it helps people to be able to give glory to God because of his mighty deeds. It teaches that praising God as our protector pleases him and he continues to pour out his favour and revelation upon us. It teaches the importance of righteousness, faith and love in humanity. "God touched me, healed me, and made me whole again." God extends his mercy in our lives and call us for his Kingdom, to be his vessels of his glory and honour. When we are weak, he becomes stronger. Readers will take heart and be comforted and assured about God's love. It helps us to combat Spiritual Warfares and teaches how to put on the full armour of God. Our truthful God cares and never tires in our lives. It is all about God's divine purpose in our lives. God is real, he moves and is aware of the struggles of this world. There is hope for terminal illness and that hope is anchored on the Cross, on the power of the blood of Jesus that purchased us. Isaiah 53:4-5 "Surely he took up our infirmities and carried our sorrows, yet we considered him stricken by God, smitten by him and afflicted. But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon him, and by his wounds we are healed."

Back To Life from the Author: Kathy McLaughlin. Kathy McLaughlin was a senior corporate executive when she learned she had Hodgkins Lymphoma. She survived, only to learn years later that her cancer had returned — but this time, it was accompanied by a terminal autoimmune liver disease. Neither disease was treatable because of the presence of the other. Told by her doctors “there is nothing we can do,” she refused to give up. Instead, she took charge of her own healing project, applying the leadership skills she had perfected in her corporate career to the business of self-preservation. Enduring all manner of indignities through a comedy of medical errors, she miraculously survives near-fatal chemotherapy, life-threatening surgery, liver failure and ultimately, two gruelling liver transplant operations.

A Little Book Of Life from the Author: Don Farrell II. Author Don Farrell brings the skill of a naturalist and the heart of a poet to this work. His experiences as a father, husband, veteran, environmentalist, singer and world traveler have formed a creative, optimistic approach to life. In 2011, enjoying a fulfi lling career of 25 years in environmental health and safety and with his two daughters now adults, Don was diagnosed with ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis—Lou Gehrig’s disease). Mr. Farrell views his increasing physical limitations as both a challenge and an opportunity. In 2012, he left the emergency response program at the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection to write, travel and enjoy life as a retiree. Support from family, friends and a loving wife, who is also his caregiver, allows Don to use his creative writing gift to inspire people and advocate for ALS patients everywhere. Don and his wife, Joan, live in Mount Joy, Pennsylvania, where music and views of farmlands and sunsets make each day a memory to treasure. When the weather is fair, there you will find Team D/J and three cats on the porch reading, writing and planning their next adventure.
