Daniella Lamas: You Can Stop Humming Now

In her first book, Daniella Lamas, a pulmonary and critical care doctor, tells stories of life after near death. Whether a man whose heart was failing depended on a left-ventricular assist device, a young college student who suffered post-traumatic stress disorder after an open surgery, or a young man who had brain injury after being overdosed, their lives after these horrific incidents were traumatizing yet inspiring. It’s a sad, insightful read.
