Ray was diagnosed with Hodgkin's disease at the age of 27, which left him with reduced immunity and potentially infertile, but happy to be alive. Five years later, back working as a builder and the father of twins, he cut his hand unblocking a drain. This led to kidney failure, septicaemia and the eventual removal of his arms and legs. Life as a quad amputee seemed bleak and overwhelming. His family were supportive but no one could possibly understand how he felt. This is the story of his struggle to cope with all that life has thrown at him, including his attempt to climb Mount Kilimanjaro. This book is a way of raising the profile of amputees, continuing the legacy of the Paralympics by giving hope and inspiration for the future, spreading the message that everyone can overcome anything with enough determination.
