Read the complete review below.
‘How Have I Cheated Death? A Short and Merry Life With Cystic Fibrosis’ is the autobiography of Tim Wotton. Tim lives with Cystic Fibrosis, one of the Uk’s most common life-threatening diseases. Since the cure of the disease is still not found, a CF diagnosis means the harbinger of an early death for many. The same happened to Tim. He was told from an early age that he would not be able to make it to his 17th birthday. This book is a diary account of his 39th year, where he recollects his daily experiences with the disease, his past, people and the wish to celebrate his 40th birthday. With the foreword written by the actress Jenny Agutter, this chronicle offers confidence, inspiration and reassurance to those who suffer from any crippling disease that a normal—and fulfilling—life is still possible.
