Alex was born on a Greek island and moves with his parents to Congo-Zaire (Democratic Republic of Congo). He studies medicine and goes to work in a hospital in the bush with his teenage wife. Faced with seemingly unsurmountable problems he works wonders and moves to Kinshasa for the comfort of his family. He is a man married to his work, he contracts AIDS and fights the difficulty of announcing this terrible news. Truly philanthropic, he offers his body to science to test the various drugs that are created to treat this new virus. You will be fascinated by his medical exploits, and be torn between him and his wife both struggling to face the problems that life presents to them. A story about life, faith and our approach to death.

Angelique D was born in Doula, French Cameroon. She is married and the mother of two children. She passed her tender childhood years in Africa where she was raised by Africans, as her parents were much occupied. After primary school she travelled between France, Greece and then Zaire (Democratic Republic of Congo) where she entered the faculty of medicine.

She always dreamed of writing this book not only because great men should rest eternal, but also to help those who are suffering.

The book is written in a simple style and is easy to read by all.

    A fascinating story of a fascinating life! How I wish I had had the opportunity to meet Alex. A true humanitarian and philanthropist who lived his life in the interest of others. I loved this book. The author led me through a whirlwind of emotions as if I was living the situations with them. I finished the book feeling inspired and with renewed hope in humanity.
