Publisher's Summary

Cystic fibrosis (CF) is one of the UK's most common life-threatening diseases, affecting more than 10,000 people. Each week five babies are born with the condition; however, each week three young lives are also lost to it. Currently there's no cure.

Not all that long ago, the diagnosis of CF meant an early death. Tim Wotton is one such sufferer, who was told from an early age that he would not live beyond his seventeenth birthday, then his thirtieth, and now his fortieth and beyond. As told by one of the oldest survivors of this crippling disease, How Have I Cheated Death? is a diary of his thirty-ninth year: a countdown to the elusive 40.

A story of triumph over adversity, this compelling chronicle, the first book written by a CF sufferer at 40, demonstrates that what cannot be cured needs to be endured. It is also a record of everyday life for someone battling CF and recently diagnosed type 1 diabetes, from medical issues to social stigmas and the juggle of managing a normal family life.

Written with great honesty, clarity, and humor, this remarkable account is a testament to the daily dedication required to deal with a long-term illness and the strength of familial bonds, from a man who has done much for the global CF community with his ongoing candid blog, Postcards from Earth. Complimented by an enlightening foreword by British actress Jenny Agutter, this profound audiobook offers hope and inspiration that even at your lowest ebb, with the odds heavily stacked against you, there is usually a way to overcome.
