Description

`I was a lost little boy, trapped in a world where I didn't belong, one that would tear me apart and build me back into someone new . . .'

Twenty-three-year-old Josh Komen is on track to represent New Zealand in running at the next Commonwealth Games when he is diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukaemia. In a single moment, the course of his life has changed irrevocably. What follows are years of excrutiating pain, brutal treatments both in New Zealand and Australia, and shocking side-effects that send a young man to the brink of despair and back innumerable times.

Ultimately, it is the enduring love of his close-knit family and friends, the incredible medical professionals who treat him, his spiritual beliefs, and his passion for nature that carry Josh through the hardest of challenges.

The life lessons Josh gathers along the way are an inspiration for us all. This is an incredible story of courage, love and endurance.
