Rescuing Jeffrey: A Memoir, Galli, Richard (St. Martin’s Griffin, 2001)

On July 4, 1998, the lives of the Galli family changed forever when their 17-year-old son dove into a pool, and broke his neck. “Rescuing Jeffery,” is a father’s first-person account of the first 10 days following his son spinal cord injury, which resulted in quadriplegia. He and his wife weigh the option of ending their son’s life, as he had become ventilator-dependent. This book will strongly point out that possibility, but, more importantly, it reinforces the strength of the human spirit, the will to live, and the compassion of one’s friends and neighbors.
