Picture a modest nine year old Armenian boy; changing brakes to make an honest wage. His father, a respected and well-liked cab driver, has instilled within him a solid work ethic. The backdrop is war torn Tehran, Iran.
This boy of humble beginnings escapes death twice and is dubbed early on: the miracle man. Thinking he has left the grim reaper behind him, he immigrates to The United States. He is a good student; fluent in several languages, and he relaxes into his life… confident that he couldn't possibly be faced with near-death three times. But his biggest challenge has yet to befall him.
Tony is an academic sponge. His love of learning affords him a chance at that elusive brass ring. Tony was a hard working man, happily married and proud father of two children. That's when the explosion changes his life; and consequently, his lifestyle.
As he lays comatose in a hospital bed for 4 months with over 90% deep burns over his body struggling to stay alive, with a prognosis of 'less than one percent chance' for survival, his family loses the big house and the two businesses that they worked so hard for. Tony's beloved automotive facility, named "The most honest mechanic shop" by Fox news, is in danger of failing. The medical bills climb as high as several million dollars.
But this is more than a 'rags to riches to rags' story. This is a love story. It is the saga of a woman with two young children who holds her head high (despite being surrounded at times by pessimism and seemingly insurmountable odds) and never believes for a moment that her husband will not 'make it'. Her unwavering faith in God and His promises glows as a shining pillar of strength in one darkened ICU hospital room; where her husband's very life has become one long harrowing rollercoaster ride with no end in sight.
