The blurb reads as follows:

According to the World Health Organisation, approximately 10 million people worldwide suffer from Familial Hypercholesterolaemia (FH). In Malaysia, this number is 1 in 500. This means that there are close to 56,000  Malaysians suffering from premature heart disease and many of them do not know it. This book chronicles one man’s journey to study the prevalence of FH among Malaysians and the monumental effort he made to ensure that they obtained all the necessary support, medication and treatment.
