Brian Thomas, a young pilot with a bleeding disorder, opts for a risky spleen removal to maintain his flight status. In 2009, he contracts a life-threatening illness and after a ten day coma, wakens to gangrenous hands and feet. He faces the prospect of becoming a quadruple-amputee, but even though surgeons save his left hand, he faces a long road to recovery, and regaining his life.
