As a world–renowned cardiologist and health activist, who has dealt with life and death on a daily basis, Dr. Terry Gordon understands that life can change in the blink of an eye. However, nothing could have prepared him for the fateful phone call he received in June of 2009 that his 20 year old son Tyler was involved in a near fatal car accident, sustaining a severe spinal cord injury that left him paralyzed.
When Terry Gordon and I met, there was this instant connection and we discovered quite a few similarities in our lives. I have also been very touched by the way Terry shares his personal story in his book – his vulnerability, his humor and love for life will stay with me for the rest of my life. I am so honored to share with you a part of our conversation.
