In this inspirational memoir, Scott Crisci tells of the past two decades he has spent battling not only multiple sclerosis, but also ulcerative colitis. Long after the doctors told him he would be confined to a wheelchair, crippled and waiting for the end if it hadn’t come already, Scott remains active, healthy and firmly in control of his life.
Within these pages, Scott recounts a life lived in his hometown of Las Vegas, the changes and challenges of that city paralleling the constant changes in his own body and life.
As a unique medical study, Scott has been puzzled over by the medical community for decades. After years of being poked, prodded and handed a variety of best guesses, Scott undertook a lengthy process of recapturing control in his life and rendering America’s medical system into merely a starting point for an overall treatment strategy in which he remains firmly at the helm.
In Beating the Odds, Scott freely shares all that he has learned about illness, people, love, medicine, and growing up in one of the world’s most unique hometowns. Scott hopes that by sharing what he has found, he can start a movement among all travelers of the healthcare road toward a mutual sharing of experience and victory.
