It soon became apparent that the new-born had a rare disease, confounding specialists and sending his parents, Melissa and Fred  Platt, on an emotional rollercoaster as his condition was misdiagnosed several times.

His distraught parents stood by Sam’s side and advocated for his needs, while feeling ignored by some of the health care professionals assigned to Sam’s care.

Samuel John Frederick Platt was born two months prematurely and rushed into the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. It soon became apparent that the new-born had a rare disease, confounding specialists and sending his parents, Melissa and Fred  Platt, on an emotional rollercoaster as his condition was misdiagnosed several times.

His distraught parents stood by Sam’s side and advocated for his needs, while feeling ignored by some of the health care professionals assigned to Sam’s care. After more than a year in a private hospital in Johannesburg, Sam’s parents managed to get a second opinion and secured a transfer to a hospital in Cape Town.

Sam finally received the proper diagnosis and started to make small yet significant steps to recovery. But just as Sam was about to be given the all-clear to go home, after spending fifteen and a half months in ICU, he passed away.

Fred Platt writes honestly about his experiences as Sam’s dad. He shares the seven lessons he learnt during this darkest period of his life, which have fundamentally changed his perspective on everything – being human, on business and on  relationships. Sam’s legacy lives on.
