August Chazan-Gabbard

March 5, 1999 – October 15, 2013

August was born in San Francisco and in 2001 moved with his family to Jacksonville, Florida, where he attended the Mt. Herman Exceptional Student Center during the day and the DLC Nurse & Learn after school and during holiday breaks. 

A book about August, provisionally titled: A Life Beyond Reason: A Father’s Story of A Disabled Boy, A Medical Error, and The Enlightenment, will be published by Beacon Press in the later part of 2018 or early 2019. The book describes who August was, how and why the medical error occurred at his birth, and what the social, political, and philosophical issues are that August and people like him raise. You can read the prologue and first chapter (of twenty-four) here.
