In this intriguing and riveting drama, Dr. Dan Ulek, an internationally renowned transplant cardiologist, delivers the keynote address at a Paris symposium on Sept 11, 2001, when the US is attacked by terrorists. In a story that flashes back in time, Dan, whose son Michael, a survivor of acute myelogenous leukemia and Dan's inspiration, struggles to integrate his professional development against the backdrop of his relationship with his family. The story examines the complicated challenges and victories Dan experiences, focusing on Michael, Dan's wife Kathy, and his colleague Jack, with whom he has a longstanding professional love/hate relationship at the Cleveland hospital where they work. Donald Hricik is a transplant nephrologist at an academic medical center in Ohio, where he resides. He has written over 175 medical papers. This is his first novel. Dr. Hricik is currently working on his next book, which revolves around the unexpected transmission of a rare infection from an organ donor to multiple organ recipients. The purchase of this book will help support programs and activities of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society and at The Gathering Place, an organization helping individuals and families touched by cancer.
