Rape, Accident, Sudden Blindness, Many Sicknesses & Four Suicide Attempts – It’s a Miracle Faith Is Still Standing

A survivor of the many challenges life threw at her, Faith laughed when a doctor told her that she may not live to be 21 because of an ailment but she survived by a miracle!

She shares her story

My doctor once told me I may not live to be 21, I was 18 then. I had acute liver inflammation and ruptured appendicitis with hypoglycemia. I laughed, If I could survive an accident that left me in a wheelchair and crutches for a year at about 10 years old, Survive the emotional, physical, mental and spiritual pain of losing my virginity at 17 to gang rape and repeated molestation by trusted family friends (well they said I could never be happy or loved by anyone except them, I wish they could See Me Now)

Survive a sudden blindness caused by an unexplained spike in my blood sugar
Survive four suicide attempts ( caused by the above), the last, an overdose of drugs which led to the liver inflammation. Then I can survive anything.

Needless to say, by a miracle I survived the appendectomy and my liver healed perfectly. My mom thinks I am a cat with nine lives, a girl after God’s heart. After constantly being in and out of the hospital, facing near death situations, I can confidently say, I am not your everyday kind of girl. I have never been normal, but who needs normal when I can be abnormally me.

I know I am made to break records, I do it every day. Your future is not tomorrow, it’s in the victories of everyday. You are not your past; you are whomever you think you are. Think wisely about yourself, for if you say you are a queen, a queen you are. Our journey in life will take different paths, respect your experiences and grow with them. It’s not always rosy, after all even roses have thorns.
