"I just felt like you go through it, you just keep pushing. I have so much faith in the Lord, I have faith in God. People would tell me to pray for miracles and I prayed for the miracle of God's strength that is why I am here with you guys,'' he said.

"He puts the heaviest weights on the shoulders of his soldiers and I'm here to show that I can fight for this. I'm okay and vulnerable. You all can see it."
