My story

My journey began at the hospital for what I thought was the routine birth and delivery of my sixth child, He was a healthy baby boy and no sooner than I held him in my arms I found myself being immediately rushed to emergency.


I was hemorrhaging. When I awoke, I looked out the window to see green grass growing where snow covered the ground only yesterday, or so I thought! It was actually close to two months later!

As I became conscious I learned that I had almost died! I had been given a 1% chance of living, 140 units of blood and even my last rites. While I was unconscious my family and friends surrounded me and had reactions all the way from lighting candles and creating prayer circles to planning my funeral.
