Resurrecting Hope With Tresha Williams

Discovering that you are battling cancer is never expected. Tresha Williams faces the experience head-on in her book, Committing Suicide to Live Again.

By: Ajableu Oldham

A hair stylist for Prince from 2006 to 2011, Tresha began having premonitions of her impending sickness. The disease she had is called bile duct cancer, a rare cancer that impacts roughly 8,000 people in the United States each year.

Through her journey, Williams learns to give herself to God in order to undergo her treatment for healing. The narrative is a testament to the power of hope.

I understand sickness distracts you from enjoying life and the blessings that God has provided for us. I also recognized there is someone else being chained to fear, doubt, disease, sin, mental, physical and emotional illnesses, therefore, I felt compelled to remind others that they can, rise up and be healed. I want you to know you are not alone.
I went through the process of killing myself just to live again. Yes, I actually consented to a plan that would allow doctors to treat my body with chemical poisons just so I could live, again. I signed up for the treatment of my physical body but during the process, I was reminded that when I accepted Jesus Christ as my personal Saviour for my spiritual body, I also accepted His healing power.
