"This am saying since it is something I have experienced. My dad was a victim and died due to the sickness, all along we were trapped in the system and hoped for the best. I am telling you things I have not talked about so you understand why I value prayers. Keep strong real winners don’t quit. I contemplated suicide since I had given up on life. Eventually, I pulled through. Where I am today is due to my mom’s prayers."
