About the Book

In 2012, the author was stricken with meningitis and four days later, lapsed into semi-consciousness.

When he regained full consciousness, he could not speak, breathe independently, control bodily functions, nor move his legs. His spinal cord was damaged at the T4 level.

Toe Up to 10K takes the reader on a journey of recovery from the spinal cord injury, from ICU, to wheelchair to the regained ability to walk.

It is not only a journey of determination and hard work, but of positive attitude, of drawing inspiration, and of gratitude towards those around the author: his family, his friends, co-workers, and medical professionals.

Reviews (Excerpts)

- "This book was really hard to put down. It's the compelling story of Steven Fujita's recovery from meningitis. The first few chapters were very detailed from his first headache to the downward spiral that left him clinging to life in the ICU. The author goes into such detail about his recovery, you really get a sense of the pain and strength it took to get to where he is today. He offers his story and resources at the back of the book that he found helpful." - Pricilla Benton

- "[...] This book is very well written, it made my heart swell with joy for the hurdles, that to most of us are small, but to him were mountainous, but he climbed them and is still climbing his way to his goal. Thank you for your Inspiration, Mr. Fujita!!" - L. Laskie

- "[...] What he shares is a story of determination, a story of recovery – one that he considers Kaizen. Steven had to work to get off the ventilator, move his toes, walk… nothing was easy, spontaneous or fast – it took hard work, time and so much effort. Now, 16 months later (at the time of the writing) he is better, though not fully recovered and not to the height of his healthy days; but he is better, and hopefully, each day will get even better." - Heather G. (Amazon)

- "An absorbing and inspirational memoir that will encourage much reflection, Toe Up To 10k is certainly deserving of a place on your bookshelf and is highly recommended[...]" - Book Viral
