Overview
Life can turn on a dime, a fact that became frighteningly clear the morning of October 12, 2019 when Jason DePetris experienced a stroke at age forty-one completely out of the blue. The stroke led to the discovery of a large and dangerous brain aneurysm for which brain surgery would be required. Jason was a health and fitness enthusiast and avid marathon runner. He had never experienced any symptoms and had no prior indication of medical problems large or small. Be. Here. Now. is a story of discovery and transformation achieved by facing mortality head on. Told through a series of flashbacks woven through scenes of the present, Be. Here. Now. walks us through the dark, scary (and occasionally funny) corners of the soul we must face when life becomes unrecognizable. Most of all, Be. Here. Now. is about coming out the other side of the fire and living again.
