Summary:
Before Steven Cojocaru was diagnosed with polycystic kidney disease, he could never have imagined himself living anything other than a high-glam Hollywood lifestyle. Red carpet guru for Entertainment Tonight and fashion correspondent for the Today show, he hauled his designer boots from New York to Los Angeles and back every week. But a painful and unglamorous reality began to form around his life, and Cojo found himself with a new Rolodex of A-List friends: the kidney team at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. This is the inspiring and darkly humorous story of how, in the midst of a world obsessed with youth and beauty, Cojo survived the fight of his life. He recounts his desperate hunt for a new kidney--after a failed transplant and months of dialysis--that ended with a twist of fate and forged an even stronger bond with his mother.--From publisher description.
