My name is Donisha Isom. I am a 28-year old college student. I currently attend Southwestern Illinois College located in Belleville, Il. I am pursuing a Associate Degree in Administrative Assistant. Many of you wouldn't know this but I am considered "A Walking Miracle." I would like to share my story.
On May 26, 2010, I almost died from a severe asthma attack. I didn't think I would make it to see my 23rd birthday. I was in a medically induced coma for 12 days so when I woke up, I was unable to do the normal everyday things I was use to doing such as walking, talking, dressing myself, feeding myself, drive, etc. June 16, I was transferred to St. Elizabeth's for intense physical and occupational therapy for 2 weeks. I was released on July 2 but if you seen me today you wouldn't know that I have been thru anything. I've had 2 more sever attacks since then and many small ones but I'm thankful to be alive. My advice to anyone is not to take your life for granted because anything can happen.
I hope this story encourages someone or touches a life.
