“2020 marks 20 years since I was diagnosed with HIV at age 8; God isn't done with me yet” – Pretty lady
There is a school of thought that everyone’s life is in the hands of the creator and if he doesn’t loosen his grips over it, you will survive all odds until your mission on earth is fulfilled.
The 27-year-old Kenyan woman recently shared a video of herself celebrating 20 years of living with HIV as well as her childhood photos to tell her story to the world.
According to her, after diagnosing her of the disease, doctors said she wouldn’t grow past her 12th birthday, saying she had only four more years to live when she was as young as eight.
However, as fate would have it, she has surpassed the deadline several folds and now marks 20 years of living with the dreadful virus.
“2020 marks exactly 20 years since I was diagnosed with HIV. I was 8 years old when my parents were told I was HIV positive. Pensive face doctors gave me up to my 12th birthday. This August I'm looking forward to my 28th birthday. God is not done with me yet," she wrote.
