More Description

RECOMMENDED READING BY THE AMERICAN ACADEMY OF ORTHOTISTS & PROSTHETISTS It was 1969 when author Kevin Garrison was diagnosed with cancer. Not long after that, Garrison s doctor informed him his right foot needed to be amputated. In that moment, Garrison knew his life would be changed forever.

In his true story of survival, Garrison shares his incredible journey facing uncertainties and anger, struggling with emotional and physical pain, and fighting fear as he moved further away from his normal routine and into the world of the permanently disabled. As he chronicles the events leading up to his loss, his recuperation, and the adoption of a prosthetic foot, he poignantly details his true feelings, triumphs, setbacks, and positive choices as he learns how to focus on his abilities instead of his disabilities. Through his exploration into his deepest, most personal thoughts, Garrison illustrates a descriptive and sometimes shockingly funny journey as he discovers what it is like to be an amputee and what it really means for his love life and his future career.

"It s Just a Matter of Balance" shares an eye opening glimpse into the inspiring life of Garrison, who demonstrates to others that with genuine acceptance of our fate, we can finally begin to live the life we were meant to have.
