While on a business trip to Singapore in 1992, 41-year-old Peter Couche, a London-based stockbroker and father of three, suffered an irreversible brain-stem stroke. Twenty-four hours later he was paralysed: he could blink in response to questions but was unable to speak, eat or breathe independently, although his mind remained alert. It took more than thirteen years for Peter to record this inspiring story of his struggle for a normal life, away from the mind-numbing world of institutions. LIFELINES is a love story and an account of the hope provided by stem-cell therapy. Above all Peter Couche shows how miracles can happen if we fight hard enough.
