Andy Marso, a reporter for the Topeka Capital-Journal, is the subject of a C-J article about his new book, “Worth the Pain.”
In it, Marso recounts how, as a college student, he was struck by viral meningitis, losing his toes and nine fingers.
He said the illness and his recovery was a “test.”
“Before I got sick, I had a very comfortable life,” Marso said. “I didn’t have to work real hard for a lot of things.”
The Journal-World wrote about his recovery in 2005.
