"Sometimes, lost in the debate about waste, fraud, and managing health care costs is the fact that healthcare professionals are highly trained and genuinely care deeply about the health and outcomes of their patients. And, together amazing things happen. Brian Boyle helps tell that story." --Harvard Medical School

"Brian has seen the patient side of the medical encounter and he has triumphed in every way." --Duke University Medical Center

"Brian's words soothe and guide healthcare providers to be always present in every moment of our patients' lives." --Maryland Hospital Association

"There is no gift as absolutely precious as the gift of life, and no one acknowledges this more than Brian Boyle. Brian treats each day as a gift and an opportunity to help others." --Gail McGovern, President of the American Red Cross

"There is no better story of a miraculous comeback than Brian Boyle's." --The Washington Post

"A car wreck nearly ended his life, but Brian Boyle wasn't going to let that stop him from achieving his goals. The very process of having set those goals, maintaining the discipline to work toward incremental benchmarks, and knowing the immense rewards of attaining them gave Boyle an advantage during his recovery." --Success Magazine
