Add to Wish List
Cory Friedman woke up one morning when he was five years old
with the uncontrollable urge to twitch his neck. From that
day forward his life became a hell of irrepressible tics and
involuntary utterances, and Cory embarked on an excruciating
journey from specialist to specialist to discover the cause
of his disease. Soon it became unclear what tics were
symptoms of his disease and what were side effects of the
countless combinations of drugs. The only certainty is that
it kept getting worse. Simply put: Cory Friedman's life was
a living hell.
AGAINST MEDICAL ADVICE is the true
story of Cory and his family's decades-long battle for
survival in the face of extraordinary difficulties and a
maddening medical establishment. It is a heart-rending story
of struggle and triumph with a climax as dramatic as any
James Patterson thriller. (2008)
