520 |a Every year, 40,000 Americans suffer spinal cord injuries. Lee Goldstein is one of them. Lee has been living with his injury for 66+ years, making him unofficially the longest living quadriplegic in history. The story of his injury and the reasons for his survival are chronicled in this stunning book. Lee tells of his terrible injury, his fight for life, and the amazing life he has led ever since. He was rescued from drowning by a famous singer. He hob-nobbed with celebrities during his hospitalization, and afterwards. Behind his success, as a young man and an adult, was a loving, caring and supportive family. Lee Goldstein and his late wife Marilyn raised five adopted children, including Tim, who suffers from autism, and whom they raised to successful adulthood. Lee's present wife Ellen is a rock and has made Lee's later years close to divine. No punches are pulled in this very honest and sometimes graphic account of what para/quads and their caretakers must be prepared to deal with every day, from the use of wheelchairs, to bathroom needs, to the sometimes life-threatening, embarrassing, or hilarious moments in the para/quad's life. Everyone who reads this book will be inspired and will come to better understand the real lives of para/quads, how they must live in order to keep living, and knowing that a good attitude has much to do with how good life, even in a chair, can be.
