Some days, Chassity Lemuel tells her story six or eight times. But she says she never gets tired of recounting the harrowing journey that brought her to deathâ€™s door at age 31.
â€œThereâ€™s always somebody that needs to hear that hope,â€ Lemuel says.
In fact, she believes God saved her from an early and preventable passing for that very reason: to repeat again and again what happened to her, to help save others from suffering a similar fate.
â€œI think God had a purpose for me, and I had to go through all of this and share my experiences with others,â€ she said. â€œI would never take back anything I had to go through because it all had a purpose.â€
Before her medical meltdown, she didnâ€™t think she had a purpose.
