Not many people can claim to live through an 11 month-long hospital stay. Gilbert Tan not only did that but also survived deadly infections, multiple surgeries and near-death moments to recount the tales as told in Hospitales.
Dotted with cutting wit that is doused with hearty humour, Gilbert’s medical stories will tickle a funny bone, draw a tear or two, or make you shake your head in disbelief.
Ride this journey—with its ups and downs, twists and turns, and an ending yet to be written—from the view of a wheelchair user.
If you think your problems in life are too big, you must get to know Gilbert Tan. He is multi-talented, funny, witty, kind, and most of all, a man who knows how to be thankful and who lives life to the fullest. I always enjoy his cheerful company. He inspires me to look at life with gusto. Be careful, his positive spirit is very infectious.
