9780595172061: ...Broken Glass and All: An Inspiring Journey of Hope and Healing

More then a book about miraculous healing, ...Broken Glass and All is an inspiring journey of hope and healing. Reading like a novel, it traces the author's life journey through the hard streets of New York City, the hilarious times of raising ten children, and his school days at the old age of 45 with a two year term in Bible college. Then came the loss of his health, livelihood and his 24 year-old son in a car accident, all while doing battle with his incurable autoimmune disease Polymyositis and taking on the American Health Care system.

His perseverance and toughness helped him win battles most men would have yielded to. ...Broken Glass and All brings hope and encouragement to anyone fighting a hopeless illness or a seemingly losing battle. Through the author's infectious mind-set against bowing to what he calls the Pawnbrokers of this World, the reader comes away ready for the fight for one's life. A healing experience for the price of a movie.

About the Author:

Broken Glass And All is about a battle with a declared incurable autoimmune disease, Polymyositis, which attacks voluntary muscles. It is a rapidly progressing disease and leads to wheelchair confinement. Untreated, there is a 10% chance of death, with a greater risk of death using standard drug treatment. The author, Al Squitieri, refused those drugs, conventional treatment and the hopeless prognosis, which led to a charge of "non-compliance" by his doctors. After wasting $52,000 and 40% of his muscle, Al went to Montreal and found a Naturopathic doctor, curing his hopeless disease, using Homeopathy. The reader follows the author through his "forty years in the wilderness" which prepared him for what was to befall him in his later yearsfrom Al's wise guy days on the streets of East Harlem, through raising of ten children, to his battle with the disease and the U.S. health care system. His victory over tremendous odds, which included loss of health, business and a 24-year-old son, is an inspiring story that brings encouragement and hope. This moving story will have you weeping and laughing, as Al skillfully moves forward, using baseball metaphors and analogies. Gifted with readable writing, wit and humor, he evokes every human emotion: joy, sorrow, frustration, anger and surprise. It is a Norman Cousins story, with an O. Henry ending. This novel-like true story will have you reading the entire book late into the night. At its end, you will believe that with a little faith, a good measure of perseverance and a whole lot of hope, all things are possible.
