Profile Picture

There's nothing more refreshing than reading a true story told well. That's exactly what you get when you read "Up and Running."

Andrew was only six years old when he came down with the disease - setting in within twelve hours, shutting down his vital organs, covering him with purple and black boils and sores, and eventually causing both of his legs to be amputated. The astounding part is not just that he survived, but that he never stopped fighting.
