As a professional MMA fighter, Marcus knows what it’s like to push his body to the limit. He has endured tremendous physical pain during his career, but it was nothing compared to the loss that awaited him.  The second he met his son, Liam, Marcus knew that his life had changed forever.  There was nothing more important than the tiny baby in front of him.  He had to stop merely thinking like a fighter and a businessman and start thinking like a father.  Marcus cherished every moment he spent with his son, but there would never be enough.  In 2016, Liam was struck by a drunk driver.  He never regained consciousness.

Throughout his memoir, Marcus shows you the depths of his grief.  His candid writing covers every emotion he felt when he was confronted with the loss of his son.  He was devastated, but he was also determined to stop Liam from becoming just another faceless statistic about the dangers of drunk driving. He and his wife, Mishel, embarked on a new fight-- to give Liam the justice he deserved.

"You don’t need to be a fighter or a parent to read this book. I’m neither and couldn’t put it down. The author writes with such detail that you feel like you are there in the moment. There are sad parts to the book but don’t let that stop you from reading it. It’s amazing to read how he channels his emotions, and persevere. Also it’s rare to read such raw deep descriptive emotions from a male author. A must read".

"After you read this book you will see how a persons' strength and desire to make a positive change can help you get through something that NO ONE should have to go through. Marcus' ability to articulate their pain after their loss is something that is truly admirable. This book displays a couples choice to LIVE life and make a change in honor of their son".

"I just got past the part of his death. It is the most gut wrenching thing I've ever read. And the bravery in writing the details will be the thing that affects people to the point of changing their behavior.
Cliche and generic stories are easy to ignore and categorize into someone else. But the painful words shared in this book will humanize your experience. It instantly puts the reader there. I hope everyone buys this book".
