Euthanasia. Life-support. Disability. Most teenagers never have to think about such things; in fact, for most of us they’re best left as fodder for medical journals and television debates. None of us want to face the possibility of life tethered to a ventilator, or the unthinkable alternative: to end that life.
In July of 1997 Kevin Thorson was a healthy, 19-year-old musician who took every opportunity to use his talents for God. That summer, a botched back-flip in Canada during a youth ministry tour ended those plans and placed him in the center of a desperate fight for his life.
In her first book Pam Thorson recounts the true story of her family’s nightmare as they struggled to live out their faith in the face of impossible odds. Song in the Night traces the family’s journey through the events surrounding Kevin’s injury, the fight to keep the doctor from pulling the plug, and God’s divine intervention along the way.
