Sagicor Investments Jamaica last Friday donated numerous copies of the autobiographical inspirational book, God's Miracle Man: Against All Odds, authored by car crash survivor Keith Tucker, to the Sir John Golding Rehabilitation Centre in St Andrew.

Sagicor Investments purchased 100 copies of Tucker's book for donation to various hospitals, clinics and churches as a source of motivation and inspiration to those who require an additional source of strength in the face of adversity.

Tara Nunes, vice-president, Sagicor Investments Jamaica, expressed how moved the team was by Tucker's experience.

"He has overcome extraordinary challenges and emerged more hopeful, driven and generous. That's something we can all take away and apply to our lives, and why we thought it important to uplift others with Mr Tucker's story," Nunes said.

 

WHEELCHAIR BOUND

 

In 1996, Tucker was in a vehicular collision which left him fighting for his life. After years of physical therapy at the Sir John Golding Rehabilitation Centre, he is much improved, but remains wheelchair bound with physical disabilities.

Two decades of adversity and triumph taught Tucker many lessons, bolstered his faith, and inspired him to write a book in order to share those lessons and provide encouragement to others.

Physical challenges can equal mental and spiritual ones, too, but, according to Tucker, "We're like teabags. You never know your strength until you get into hot water."

He added: "You never know your greatness until you reach out."

Tucker's book is filled with stories of human kindness and parallels to scriptures found in the Bible. It also highlights the extraordinary work done by the team at the Sir John Golding Centre, more popularly known as Mona Rehab.

Tucker's book can be found at select bookstores.
