When our guest was a teen, a catastrophic fire claimed the lives of his mother and younger brother. It also left him with burns on over 65 percent of his body. During a long and painful recovery, his faltering faith in God was strengthened by a remarkable near-death experience. Inspired to pursue a career as a plastic surgeon to help those who suffer as he has, this physician has overcome numerous other adversities on his journey, including addiction and a stroke. Now he shares his incredible true story of survival and perseverance to bring hope and healing to those dealing with great physical and emotional pain. Join us to find real hope in this redemptive story.

Learn how the power of grace can transform a life!
