Within days he lay unconscious on a hospital bed, and had had half his skull removed. Jacob was fighting for his life, against meningoencephalitis: an infection of the lining of the brain and the brain substance. “If we don’t operate, he may die, if we operate, he may die," Jacob's parents were told. Doctors told Sarah to prepare for the worst. But she refused, instead she promised him that one day he would be an old man sitting on a bench telling his grandchildren the amazing story of how he had fought his battle and won. Jacob's whispered answer was, “Mummy, you tell my story! Write a book and tell my story!” This is the story of a boy who survived against all odds, who became the life and soul of every event, who inspired his family to set up Survivors Malta, offering a space for people going through traumas to share their pain and give each other the motivation to carry on. This is the story of Jacob, the Titanium Man. cover photo: Brian Grech

Sarah Cachia magħrufa l-aktar bħala omm it-Titanium Man, Jacob. Fl-2013 kienet ko-fundatriċi tas-sapport group Survivors Malta flimkien ma’ binha, li dak iż-żmien kellu 15-il sena u li kien għadu kif beda jirkupra minn marda serja. Minn hemm indunat li meta taqsam l-istorja tiegħek tkun qed tgħin lilek innifsek u lil ħaddieħor, u minn hemm għaddiet biex, flimkien ma’ Kristina Chetcuti, kitbet il-ktieb Jacob: My Titanium Man. Sarah dejjem għandha xi ħaġa xi tgħid u x’tikteb, biex tispira u timmotiva lil kull min ikollu bżonn. Miżżewġa lil Sammy u omm ukoll ta’ Chloe u l-kelb Peanut, il-pożittività ta’ Sarah toħroġ minn kull kelma li tgħid.
