PRLog - Nov. 29, 2011 - CHANDLER, Ariz. -- Brighton Publishing LLC announced author Andrew Bloom has joined the Brighton family of authors for his memoir, A Bleeding Brain. This harrowing and inspirational true account of Bloom’s experiences as a three-time stroke survivor is slated for release in mid-2012.

FACT: Every 40-seconds someone in the United States suffers a stroke.

FACT: Of the nearly-800,000 strokes occurring annually in the U.S., more than 145,000 are fatal.

FACT: For the remaining 80-percent of stroke victims who survive, their lives are affected very profoundly. Many face challenging therapy and rehabilitation. All, however, live with the higher probability of another bleed. And because of this, their lives have indeed changed forever.

From the very first pages, readers will come to love Andrew Bloom. His is a story of desperation and inspiration told in a voice that will amaze from the outset. Faced with the most daunting challenges, Andrew never stops approaching life, or his dreams, with a love and desire that will awaken in readers a true self-renewal. This is not just a book about survival. In reality, this is a book about the beauty of life and how it really is worth fighting for.

In A Bleeding Brain, readers will experience a world not easily understood through the selfless, honest prose of Andrew Bloom, who makes no attempt to hide any flaws or mask any weakness. In his willingness to open up onto the pages of this book what really happened to him, and how it actually felt, Bloom offers readers a rare glimpse inside a terrifying scenario when one’s own brain is injured.

As Bloom writes, “At twenty-one all seemed very normal. I was a teenager who loved sports, being with friends, attending college, having a good job and a steady girlfriend. Then one day in August of 1988, that all changed forever. I had a bad headache and was diagnosed with the flu. As my headache worsened, my speech slurred and paralysis set in on my dominant side. I knew something was very wrong. At the emergency room, I was told a congenital malformation in my brain stem was bleeding. My family and I were not ready for that diagnosis or the long road to recovery that would follow…”

“What follows is Bloom’s journey through recovery and setback, through triumph and tragedy, and the agony of not one, but two more strokes,” said Kathie McGuire, director of Brighton Publishing LLC. “Now in his forties, Andrew Bloom is still a survivor—and a husband, and a father, and an author—and proof that sometimes our greatest challenges are our best opportunities to show our strength and our humanity.”
