Sometimes, you only find everything when you are willing to try anything.... From "a brave warrior and a wonderful writer" (Elizabeth Gilbert, number one New York Times best-selling author of Eat Pray Love), the true story of a fiery young woman's heartwarming and hilarious journey that takes her from near death in California to a trip around the world in search of a cure. Along the way, she discovers a world of cultural mayhem, radical medical treatment, an unexpected romance, and, most importantly, a piece of her life she never even knew she was missing. When everyone gave up on her... When Amy B. Scher was struck with undiagnosed late-stage, chronic Lyme disease, the best physicians in America labeled her condition incurable and potentially terminal. Deteriorating rapidly, she went on a search to save her own life - from the top experts in Los Angeles and the world-renowned Mayo Clinic in Minneapolis to a state-of-the-art hospital in Chicago. She risked her own life to find it. After exhausting all of her options in the US, she discovered a possible cure - but it was highly experimental, available only in India, and had as much of a probability of killing her as it did of curing her. Knowing the risks and armed with her self-created motto "when life kicks your ass, kick back", Amy packed her bags, convinced her parents, and flew across the world anyway. But this is not just another book about illness. Vikas Swarup, New York Times best-selling author of Slumdog Millionaire calls this book "a heartwarming and inspiring story that will change the way you look at life." "In her stunning new memoir, the refrain 'we are the healing we've been waiting for' rings throughout...a beautiful testament to resilience that veers from the comical to the tragic." (LA Review of Books) It's for anyone who believes in - or doubts - the existence of miracles when it seems like all hope is lost.  You'll discover who you really are (and why it matters). Do you ever wonder what it takes to save your own life? Or even just your sanity when times are hard? This Is How I Save My Life will help you discover who you really are. While Amy's story began as the search for a physical cure from Lyme disease, it turned out to be so much more. It turned out to be about life - how we get through when it seems impossible and even find some humor in it all.  And you'll learn very important things, too, like: How chocolate cake might help you keep the faith Why telling yourself the truth is more important than anything else And the best way to outrun a group of schoolboys in India if you're ever mistaken for the pop singer Shakira!
