Sharing her remarkable story, Decker wrote:
"Unfortunately, sometimes we feel/think that it’s not fair for us to go through what we are going through….like how my mom felt that it wasn’t fair for me, her 4 years old perfect little girl to loose all of her hair, eyebrows and eyelashes…. practically over night to Alopecia."
"Not when we live in a society which places so much emphasis on a females hair, especially girls/women of color. But like she eventually learned, even with all the limitless thoughts of despair the enemy try’s to plant in your mind…. you have to gather all of your faith, hope, trust, and might….and ask God for the strength to SURRENDER IT ALL TO HIM!!!"
