Dan Caro has been proving the world wrong since he was in diapers. When he was two years old he was engulfed in a fireball during a gasoline explosion in the family garage and was left with third-degree burns over most of his bodyso severe that doctors held out little hope hed survive more than a few days. Dan was in such excruciating pain that his devastated parents silently prayed for God to end their sons suffering and welcome him into heaven. And it seemed as if God was willing to obligeDan technically died on the operating table several times in the hours following the accident. But even though his heart stopped Dans spirit wasnt ready to give up . . . somehow he knew he had work to do. Despite the odds Dan survived but life would not be easy. The fire left him badly maimed and disfigured. His hands were burned away as was most of his skin and nearly all of his face. He would endure years of painful surgeries and endless months of lonely isolation in burn units only to suffer the agony of social rejection shunned and called monster by both children and adults in his Louisiana hometown. With the support of his loving parents and siblings Dan did not despair. He kept his heart open to the world and focused on the positive energy around him. Before his sixth birthday he vowed that his life would not be defined by the way others saw him or the restrictions of his so-called physical handicaps. Dan set himself a series of life goals starting with the art of tying his shoelaces without fingers. Once he had achieved that milestone he decided he could do anything . . . so why not learn to play the drums? When Dan was told hed never be able to do so he promised himself that one day hed become one of the most accomplished drummers in the city that gave jazz its nameNew Orleans! Since that day Dans music has inspired thousands and many more have also been inspired by his personal philosophy of focusing on the positive refusing to accept limits and living life with an open heart. Today the young man who was once shunned and called monster by his neighbors is very much in demand as a public speaker and travels the country encouraging others to not just overcome lifes hardships but to view adversity as a gift that can drive us toward reaching our full potential. This is Dans first book.
