Dr. Atiya Abdelmalik could have allowed life to bury her under a mountain of heartache, illness and trauma. She could have succumbed to the pressures of a world that crumbled around her. She could have given up hope, buried her faith and died. She could have, but she didn’t. Instead, Dr. A. turned her struggle into strength and faith into action.
This episode we learn how Dr. A. used her life experiences to awaken her purpose, sharing with us her journey through life-threatening illnesses, the loss of her son, and the redemptive power of love and forgiveness.
