Author Richard Burns takes readers on an exciting journey of positivity and laughter as he chronicles his 20-plus years of work with experts in the medical community, hospitals, and people who survived serious illnesses.

Author Richard Burns, a stroke survivor, has released “Live or Die: Act II,” an engaging book that brings a story of hope and practical advice for those struggling with any serious disease. 

Richard Burns suffered a Cerebral Hemorrhage and was declared dead at the age of 38. However, he surprised the medical community after regaining consciousness and eventually led a healthy life.

“Many people in the medical community were amazed at what happened to me. My story in itself is a miracle – a blessing that has pushed and inspired me to help others who suffer from critical illnesses, on their deathbed, and how families can cope with these challenging circumstances,” Richard Burns said.

“Live or Die: Act II” is a wise tale of 20-plus years of work with experts in the medical community, hospitals, as well as those who survived severe illnesses in the United States.

According to data released by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention this year, every 40 seconds, someone in the country has a stroke, and every 3.5 minutes, a person dies of stroke. In 2020 alone, one in six deaths from cardiovascular disease was due to stroke.

More than a story of hope, Richard Burns aims to take readers on a journey of laughter, smiles, and positivity even in the midst of tragedy.

“Sometimes, when we deal with something really serious like cancer, we forget to laugh and fail to see the light at the end of the tunnel. This book is a reminder for readers to stay positive,” says Richard.

Richard Burns, also known as “Dick Burns,” is a retired television and advertising professional with a career that spans over 40 years in a wide array of work – from sales and promotion for TV to management, advertising, and even public relations.
