The 54-year-old believes she saw the much talked about white light and people who had already passed away. "They thought I had a ruptured vessel that had bled itself out.
During the next operation they found an artery that was pumping blood into my brain. They put in platinum to shut it off. I was close to death at one point and saw the white light that people claim they see."
"Compared to that illness, nothing has been so difficult. It was as if I had been shot in the head.I did see people who I knew had died, as close and real as any living thing," she added.
