About this title
A near-death experience leads one man to do the impossible in Matt Crofton’s inspiring memoir, Mighty.
While exploring the caves of Costa Rica in 2010, Matt contracts a deadly disease that leaves him only forty-eight hours to live.
Despite multiple organ failure and a bone marrow infection, Matt slowly recovers from his terrifying incident.
Grateful to be alive, he faces a long road to recovery—including dialysis and the need for a new liver. But once again, Matt defies doctors’ expectations when his organs inexplicably regain function. After two months in the hospital, Matt is released with a new perspective on life.
Still battling crippling depression brought on by his medical nightmare, he is nonetheless determined to share his story and to pay forward his miracle by becoming the first person to navigate a stand-up paddleboard down the entire twenty-four hundred miles of the Mississippi River.
The people and obstacles Matt meets along the way manage to renew his broken spirit with every mile he passes.
Heading out on his twenty-four-hundred-mile, four-month journey, Matt discovers new friendships, navigates treacherous obstacles—and learns to heal both his body and soul while exploring all that encompasses the mighty Mississippi.About the Author:
