How do you say Thank You to someone who gave you everything?
Simon's incredible journey is documented in this book. From being on the verge of superstardom as one of North Americas best young soccer players, Simon was originally turned down for a heart transplant in his native Canada. Read about the dramatic life saving operation in England and how Simon climbed back up to the top of the mountain once again by becoming one of North Americas best soccer players even while playing with someone else's heart inside his chest. This riveting book will capture your own heart as Simon, 25 years after receiving the gift of life, makes the pilgrimage with his family to seek out the donor family of the young man who tragically lost his life at 17 years old. The coincidences and truly miraculous events that Simon discovers on this trip will shake even the toughest humans right down to their core.
A true, almost unbelievable, story of human achievement, hope, luck, family and love. A tale of a father and a son and a father and son....and how one heart brought them all together...
ABOUT THE BOOK
The book is currently being written by a nationally recognized published sports biographer (name to be released at a later date). The still unnamed SIMON KEITH STORY should be completed and ready for publishing in early spring of 2012.
OUR GOAL FOR THE BOOK
Simply put, we want to get the story out to as many people as possible. It is a story of hope, and love, and family all centered around the game of soccer/football. We plan to promote the book through the publishing house and Simon will engage in speaking events and book signings as a way to inspire people.
Kickstarter is the largest funding platform for creative projects in the world. Every month tens of thousands of amazing people pledge millions of dollars to projects from the worlds of music, art, film, technology, design, food, and other creative fields. Every Kickstarter project must be fully funded before time expires.
WHAT HAPPENS IF WE DONT REACH OUR GOAL
If we don't raise our goal, we don't get anything. Donors pledge amounts, but don't actually pay until the goal is reached and the funding deadline has passed. We want to avoid this so please spread the word. Everything helps! When we meet our goal we will finish the book and fulfill all the rewards/orders that we have committed to.
HOW YOU CAN HELP
This book is only going to be possible with the help of you! We want this to be your project! The more people participate the more chance we have of having a successful project. To help us please Twitter it, "Like" us on Facebook, and email the Kickstarter link to your contacts.
