His character defines him,

not his disability.

Bob Lujano captured the nation's attention in 1979 because of his mind-blowing response to tragedy. For seventeen years, the headlines sounded the same no matter the year or the paper: "...achieves goals despite disability...middle name is courage...gutsy kid beats odds..." Now for the first time, Bob chronicles his unbelievable journey from choosing life as a quad amputee, to winning a bronze medal at the Paralympics, co-starring in Murderball, and living a life full of gratitude and hope.

By age nine, Bob had already seen the ugly side of life. His mom abandoned them, his dad ruled with a belt, and his grandfather controlled with a fist. As if that wasn't enough, he then contracted a nearly fatal form of meningitis that called for the removal of all four limbs and visits to the burn unit. While in a coma, a mysterious visitor gave him the choice to live--without the life he had planned--or die.
