A pilgrim’s report from that eerie country which may be on everyone’s itinerary. . . and makes the way easier.
Anthony Alioto was diagnosed with end stage renal disease in 1993 and was forced to go on dialysis for several years before receiving a successful kidney transplant in 2000.
In The Ninefold Path, he invites readers to join him on a harrowing personal journey through a labyrinth of tests, “what can I expect” meetings with medical staff, surgeries, and neardeath experiences. He spares no detail in his desire to provide a guide for others living with a chronic disease – and their families and friends – on how to navigate the oftentimes rough waters of modern medicine.
The Ninefold Path is for all of those wearily traveling through chronic illnesses and for those by their sides wondering what to do. It is a celebration of the extraordinary individuals in medicine who relieve the suffering of strangers each and every day. In cataloging detail, there is inspiration plus a call to compassion and serenity.
