Welcome to the online home of Apryl Michelle Brown.
In Mid-2011, Apryl Michelle Brown, fell deathly ill with complications from a botched silicone buttocks injection that had gone bad years earlier.
She had 24 hours to live!
The staph infection that was plaguing her body was raging a war, and the battle was being lost according to the doctors. At that moment, unable to speak – Apryl Michelle Brown knew she wanted to live.
For several days she was on the brink of death. Doctors told her family to prepare for the worst, death. The doctors felt the only chance to save her would be amputation, but not just one limb, both hands and feet, as well as, her buttocks. This news devastated her family as she lay lifeless.
A spirit which was always in Apryl emerged, she awoke briefly, she gave the go ahead to the doctors to “do what was necessary” After many months in the hospital’s critical care unit, and intensive rehab, Apryl emerged with a completely renewed rebirth of spirit, and an amazing quest to unlock the void which had always eluded her.
While rehabilitating in the hospital, Apryl learned that the amputations of her hands and feet were not necessary. Her HMO had denied her treatment two years earlier, which caused the doctors to make a life altering determination to amputate.
In spite of the outcome, the spirit, and belief that has emerged from Apryl has been nothing short of amazing. It has allowed her to understand the journey she knows God has always wanted for her.
She knows it’s not about blaming or pointing the finger at anyone. She wants to look at this whole process as her spiritual journey, a lesson, a teaching tool for others, and an opportunity to unleash the spirit inside that was held hostage for so long.
She hopes her life can be used as an example, to advocate for reformed action, for others to understand that “prevention is just as important as educating individuals to make better informed choices“.
Her goal however large is that women, and men of all ages and races will heed the loud warning signs, and seek skilled professional services.
