My Goals For The Future By: Jennifer Mills WOW! Where do I start? First I will give you a little history about myself. I have always been and have always wanted to be a nurse. I started caring for people when I was 10 or 12 years old I guess? My Granny she was a brittle diabetic, and she was also confined to a wheelchair since 1955.

Then the Doctors put it to me like this….Either You have the Surgery or you die within the next year! So needless to say I opted for the Surgery, but not without life threatening complications. Two months after the surgery I almost die of malnutrition and dehydration. My wonderful family and Church Family and other Church started Praying for me and I was anointed at my Home Church and so here I am today 218 lbs less and
