They all thought he was gone. But he was alive and trapped
inside his own body for ten years.
In January 1988 Martin Pistorius, aged twelve, fell
inexplicably sick. First he lost his voice and stopped
eating. Then he slept constantly and shunned human contact.
Doctors were mystified. Within eighteen months he was mute
and wheelchair-bound. Martin's parents were told an unknown
degenerative disease left him with the mind of a baby and
less than two years to live.
Martin was moved to care centers for severely disabled
children. The stress and heartache shook his parentsâ€™
marriage and their family to the core. Their boy was gone.
Or so they thought.
Ghost Boy is the heart-wrenching story of one boyâ€™s return
to life through the power of love and faith. In these pages,
readers see a parentâ€™s resilience, the consequences of
misdiagnosis, abuse at the hands of cruel caretakers, and
the unthinkable duration of Martinâ€™s mental alertness
betrayed by his lifeless body.
We also see a life reclaimedâ€”a business created, a new love
kindledâ€”all from a wheelchair. Martin's emergence from his
own darkness invites us to celebrate our own lives and fight
for a better life for others.
