An Ohio woman is being hailed by the community for her brave decision to defy the doctor’s advice for saving the life of her daughter.
Kertisha Brabson, 31, started behaving differently, trying to grab things that didn’t exist, dancing when there was no music, talking jibberish, and more, she eventually had a seizure which landed her in coma.
Doctors diagnosed Kertisha with Anti-NMDA receptor encephalitis, where the brain cells are under attack from its own body and advised her mother, Kertease Williams, that she was brain-dead and to pull the plug.
But she chose not to listen to them and said to local media, that something had “taken over” her daughter and was ‘ruining’ her. “I don’t have no doctor’s background,” Kertease said, “[I’ve] never been to school for anything, but when it’s your child, you’re going to do everything in your power to bring your daughter back.”
Kertisha was taken to another medical center in Columbus, and was being “aggressively” treated by doctors. After 7 months of being in a coma, Kertisha finally woke up.
“Oh, my goodness, we just jumped up and down and screamed and nobody slept that morning,” Kertease said. But to her, it was like waking up after a nap. She had no clue how much time had passed.
They all spent this last holiday together including two young children of her own, daughter Diamonique and son Perez.
This miracle was possible only because of the unfailing love of a mother for her daughter and trust in God.
