Summary
Rob Fraser was born with cystic fibrosis and always knew his life would be cut short. With wry humor he observes that at thirty -three he has outlived his alotted time. We watch his struggle for dignity against the humiliating effects of illness and the tendency of caregivers to lose sight of his humanity. Rob has confronted the philosophical issues most of us struggle with all of our lives; the meaning of life and death, body and soul. Rob s remarkably frank discussions of his situation illustrate his huge capacity for life: for him, the surf seems bigger and his guitar sounds sweeter than it might otherwise. He is down-to-earth and gets irritated with pills, hospitals and the medical system; yet he realizes he is utterly dependent on them. Rob has decided that he is ready to risk everything by placing himself on the waiting list for a lung transplant. Rob s courage and steadfastness is buoyed by the strong bonds he has formed with other people with life-threatening illnesses. He is fortified by the nourishing love of his wife which helps him deal with the precarious nature of his life
