Emma Ugolee took to his Instagram page on Thursday, 26th to announce to his followers that he’s now healthy, after going through 22 surgeries.

He wrote:

“Look who is standing. Standing after about a decade since both kidneys failed. After a failed transplant and 22 surgeries of all sorts, from the thighs to the eyes. With several cuts and scars. After four 911 rides and several near strolls to the other side. After over 10 hospitals in 4 countries,” he wrote.


After 1,296.00 sessions of dialysis. After a colon cancer scare. After disappointments from men. After almost a million dollars. After bouts of depression Yes! Guess who is still standing? Standing healthier, standing stronger, standing wiser, standing more hopeful and zesty than ever.”
