At the age of 30 suddenly his life fell apart.
3 years since the diagnosis, a strategic planner from a global advertising agency who can now only move his left index finger and his face, expresses his thoughts and emotions on life before and after ALS…and about his hope.
In the U.S. alone, approximately 5,600 people are diagnosed with ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, also known as Lou Gehrig's disease or MND) a year. Told through a series of short anecdotes and remembrances, author Masahiro "Hiro" Fujita (b. Nov. 30, 1979) recounts his life story, which spans Tokyo, New Jersey, Zurich and London, from birth through the present. In what Fujita describes as more of a diary as opposed to a book, he lets the reader behind the curtain, sharing moments he has had with family, friends, colleagues and acquaintances, both before and after his diagnosis with ALS in November 2010. All of these stories, told with frank honesty and, at times, heart-wrenching emotion, have shaped the way he views life, as well as the way he battles this terminal disease.
Written with the use of his eyes using an eye-tracking system, Fujita guides the reader towards a better understanding of ALS and shows them his unwavering vision for a cure.
