From the Publisher:
?Maybe I've finally beaten this thing, maybe three years' struggle will not have been in vain. Maybe this is finally over . . .? ?from Damon's blog, May 2004 A FAMILY' S LOVE lies at the heart of this gifted boy's fight to survive. Born with a congenital heart defect that required surgery when he was a baby, Damon Weber lives a big life with spirit and independence that have always been a source of pride to his parents, Doron and Shealagh. But when Damon is diagnosed with a new illness as a teenager, his triumphant coming-of-age tale turns into a darker and more dramatic quest: his family's race against time and a flawed heath care system.Immortal Bird is a searing account of a father's struggle to save his remarkable son, a story of a young boy's passion for life, and a tribute to his family's love. It is also a story of the perils of modern medicine and the redemptive power of art in the face of the unthinkable.

Praise

"[This is] a heartbreaking and bitter memoir. It's a love letter to his son and an attack on the New York doctors he's suing. Only heartless readers wouldn't be sympathetic. . . ." - Bob Minzesheimer 03/01/2012
