A New Day, A True Story of Healing, Faith and Miracles by Dora Barilla
About The Book
Dora Barilla had the perfect life; a great job, a handsome firefighter husband, two beautiful daughters, and a house in the suburbs. But on March 15, 2005, her world was turned upside down. While on a routine call, husband Tom Barilla suffered a traumatic brain injury in a horrific collision that nearly killed him, destroying Dora’s perfect world.
In painstaking detail, Dora recounts the days sitting by Tom’s bedside as he lay in a coma, the numerous surgeries he endured, the endless hours of rehabilitation, and weeks of nasty litigation that pitted the family of firefighters and the city against the California Highway Patrol and the tour bus company that crashed into Tom’s fire engine.
Dora tells the story of her struggle to maintain optimism for her family and friends as well as keep her own sanity. Ultimately, with faith and understanding, Dora is able to accept the challenges of her new world, and embrace a New Day.
All book proceeds go to Partners for a Better Health, a nonprofit that promotes health initiatives. Funds from the book sales are earmarked to assist those experiencing traumatic brain injuries.
