Fr Tony Coote was just fifty-three years old in February 2018 when he was diagnosed with Motor Neuron Disease. Just a few short months later, he found himself confined to a wheelchair. But rather than succumbing to the darkness that threatened to overwhelm him in the days after his diagnosis, he drew on his powerful faith and unwavering belief in life and found a way to light, hope and acceptance.
From growing up in Fairview, to serving in the dioceses in Ballymun and later Mount Merrion and Kilmacud, and his charity work while in UCD, Fr Tony takes us on the journey of his life and shows us how, through this devastating illness, he came to know the true meaning and nature of God's love.

Sadly, Tony passed away on the 28 August 2019 but his memoir and his message of hope, strength and unwavering faith live on.

Live While You Can is the inspiring, life-affirrming account of finding joy in dark times and living every day in the now.

Eloquent and painfully insightful ... [Live While You Can] is a book about what it means to live gracefully, to live with faith and to appreciate every day, no matter what life throws at you. - Irish Times

Meeting Fr Tony Coote was transformative. He is truly a one off. An amazing, inspirational, courageous and humane individual. He radiates kindness and great humour. People have an immense love for him and one can instantly see why. - Camille O'Sullivan

Every so often a guest comes my way that makes you stop in your tracks; for his humour, humility and humanity, Tony Coote is one such gentleman. This story is salutatory and important - Ryan Tubridy

This book is about Tony's personal story. It is a story that will change the way every reader will look on his or her own life. - Archbishop Diarmud Martin

I know that my life is richer as a result of knowing Fr Tony and I'm sure, when you turn the last page of this book, yours will be too. - Claire Byrne
