RESURRECTING ANTHONY: A True Story of Courage

Tony and Linda Cole were living the American Dream—a successful national training company, a nice home, a close-knit circle of friends and a loving family.
Then came the call every parent dreads.
Their twelve-year-old son Anthony had collapsed on the school playground. In the ensuing panic-stricken moments, Anthony lay motionless, unconscious, not breathing. These critical minutes without oxygen left his brain damaged. In one heartbreaking afternoon their idyllic world was shattered and the son that Tony and Linda Cole knew was gone.

Resurrecting Anthony is the true, inspiring story of an unexpected tragedy that steals a child from his family and initially leaves them full of grief and sorrow. It reveals the Cole family's incredible devotion and determination—despite the medical evidence and advice of health professionals—to return Anthony to his previous self.


Steadfast and single-minded of purpose, Tony Cole tries to balance stressful business demands and the emotional dynamics of a devastated family as he desperately tries to bring his son back.

Ultimately, it is a story of courage—the courage to summon inner strength to make hard decisions, the courage to do what must be done, and finally the courage to accept a new life and family.


My Thoughts:
Resurrecting Anthony is a great book for someone  going through a difficult time in their lives.  It serves as a reminder for everyone that life is short and that no matter what the circumstances are, there is hope and you will make it through.  I love how the book includes a "Tool Box" of resources for people going through a similar situation.  Young or old you will enjoy this inspirational story.
