When Your Only Hope For Survival Turns Into Unlimited Hope

"You have a very sick baby. He may not live the day!"

No parent should ever hear those words, yet this was just the beginning for Mike and Jan.

Born with multiple disabilities, Ben was just hours old and forced to fight for his life.

This is the true story of learning to cope with never-ending emotional and physical exhaustion. And where survival seemed like the only goal.

Despite being told he might never walk, talk or go to school, Mike and Jan were determined to unleash the smart, social, loving boy who was trapped deep inside a spastic body.

Ben ignored the experts and developed this unstoppable determination to live an amazing life.

He showed everyone that a world of fear and despair, of pain and exhaustion, can be overcome if you have the key ingredients for unlimited hope and the support of an inclusive community.

Listen to their gripping story to fuel your own unstoppable determination to OVERCOME ANYTHING!
