Sharing her surviving story, Abigail, who is currently in her final year at the University, studying Public Health wept, saying "The part that really got me jittery was when trained doctors in Ghana, South Africa and London told me that if I fail to undergo dialysis I could not live to see the 5th year."

"It wasn’t a joke. I lived each day of the first five years after my diagnosis as if it could be my last day. My nights were like a python in my throat. I woke up everyday night shocked that I was still alive, that my heart was still beating and my blood was still circulating."

"Suddenly, I was glum. I stopped caring and was just waiting for death to come for me. I gave out most of my belongings and even wrote a will, knowing very well that my time was up. Many didn’t understand why, and I couldn’t explain it to them without shedding tears."

"So I exempted myself from the family home where I was residing and rented an apartment. I didn’t want my mum to feel as though all she had was gone or was going. Tears flooded my eyes anytime I saw her. I never thought I would live to this day, but one word changed my mind. I sensed God telling me, Child of God, you need to wake up from your slumber."

Ten years now, and Abigail Ashley walks through the tunnel of death without dying and living as a testimony to the fact that does not only inspire you but will also give you a reason to keep pressing on and trusting God in spite of your challenges.
