This book is a no-holds-barred look at the journey of a sufferer of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD). Life was fulfilling and full of promise for De De. But on 1 April 2007, after experiencing severe breathing difficulties that landed her in a hospital’s intensive care unit, she was diagnosed with COPD by a team of specialist doctors. In October that same year, her conditions had deteriorated so much that she was given a two-month death sentence.
Against all odds, the author found herself living for more than a decade after that. The grace of God saw her surviving several near-death episodes and even gave her the ability to “smile through the storm”.
How does anyone cope with an indefinite stay on death row? Walk with De De and find out…
