A Texas man who has survived four brain hemorrhages has written a book about survival. Those episodes have left him at times either unable to walk or get out of bed, or temporarily blind and hard of hearing.
Now, Les Duncan of Plano is hoping his book will show others how to use life's challenges as inspiration to survive. "I said to myself, you know, you've learned a lot about what it takes to recover and go on to live a successful life after having a serious illness and you could probably help a lot of other people by passing that knowledge along," said Duncan.
The book is called "Brain Storms: Advice for People Who've Survived a Major Illness." Les says he hopes this book will at least help his youngest son, who has the same condition that causes bleeding in the brain.
You can find Les's book at Barnes and Noble and at Amazon.com.
