Today I was just scrolling down Instagram as I often do and came across a moving post by The Shade Room. A Myracle Holloway is giving a kidney to her ailing boyfriend, JaMarr “Stitch” Nance.
There are a lot a negative comments over on that post, but I thank God that the world gets to see through her just what a real Christian is supposed to look like and I think this act of love and obedience should be praised!
Holloway’s boyfriend JaMarr, says that he has been working at about 60% for a few years now with extremely limited use of his legs. And, just a few short months ago his kidney was operating at only 8%, He couldn’t get out of the bed, muscles were tight and he even lost almost 30lbs and in his mind, he felt he was getting closer to the end, but he began dialysis immediately.
Treatments were 3 days a week. JaMarr never complained or asked God why me? He just continued to use his gifts in helping others and prayed for good health. Little did he know that God had already answered his prayers.
Along came love…
Myracle Holloway gained national attention for her amazing singing voice when she appeared as a contestant on the nationally televised show “The Voice.” She has blown viewers away with her powerful vocals and she has collected a huge gathering of fans since she made her initial debut at the blind auditions for the 2019.
But this story is far greater…
In an interview with The Shade Room on Tuesday, the singer explained that she met the fashion designer through a mutual friend while she was competing on the singing competition show.
“I met him over the phone through a mutual friend of ours named Mark Bush while I was on Season 17 of ‘The Voice,’” she explained. “Stitch is a fashion designer so we were connecting so he could help me with my wardrobe. I was in L.A. at the time and Stitch was in Chicago.”
Though she did not know about Stitch’s health issues, Holloway could feel his “pain and hurt.”
After another phone conversation, in which Holloway revealed the emotional reason behind her musical pursuits, Stitch flew her to Chicago to help with her wardrobe.
“After our last phone convo before flying out there, I immediately heard God internally say, ‘I’m supposed to do something for him,’” she recounted.
While in Chicago, Stitch finally told Holloway about his kidney problems. Despite hesitation from friends and family, and the fact that the two were not yet a couple, Holloway felt compelled to give Stitch her kidney once she wrapped “The Voice.”
“Then when I got to Chicago, he tells me about his kidney. I was like, ‘That’s what I’m supposed to do, give him my kidney after I finish on the show.’ We weren’t together yet, but our friendship turned into a love relationship,” she said. “I told him I would still give him my kidney even if we didn’t work out because I have to be obedient to what God is telling me… Everybody from my friends to [my] family thought I was insane, but I tuned them out.”
After eight months of testing, Holloway was given the OK to be Stitch’s donor.
Earlier this week, the two successfully completed a kidney transplant at UIC Hospital in Chicago. A mere day after the surgery, Stitch says his kidney “is almost normal.”
