I usually dont like to poke my nose into other peoples bizness especially health problems but this is a story that touched my heart. Some time ago it was in the news that actress, Caroline Johnson (Uju in Heavensgate)was diagnosed with leukemia. Money was raised for her to go to India for treatment. She did and is back in Nigeria. Here is her thank you letter (culled from lindaikeji.blogspot.com) accompanied by some pix...pls be warned that they are a bit graphic.
HE KEPT HIS WORD…
This is Caroline Johnson and am happy to write this letter. Firstly, I would like to let you know that Jesus Christ really lives and I thank God for seeing me through.
I sympathize with those out there going through this because I have been there; I know what it is to be helpless, hopeless and sick. My prayer is that our good Lord will rise up on your case as he did with mine.
I am inspired and glad to write you all and with sincere appreciation deep down within me, I would like to say a BIG THANK YOU to every one who has been a part of my medical trip to India and above all your Prayers.
I arrived safely from India and I am in good health. Before I left as you must have read, I was diagnosed with LEUKEMIA (cancer of the blood) and with CENTRAL NERVOUS complication and breakdown to the point that I could no longer walk, loss of hearing and loss of vision and at a point I started having seizures. But today, no single LEUKEMIC CELL (cancer cell) can be found in me! PRAISE GOD!
Though I have scars and still on physiotherapy due to a foot drop, I know that my Lord will perfect that which He has started. I will be going back to India in a couple of months for further check up.
Once again, thank you very much, the good lord will bless you, keep you, uplift you and continue to show you mercy.
Before I conclude, I thank God for giving me a second chance to be what He wants me to be, the mother to my wonderful children and wife to my ever supportive, loving and caring husband.
Thank you very much and God bless you all.
Caroline Johnson (a.k.a Uju Heavens Gate)
