The battle for life fought by Dwayne Maxey of Martin and his family truly is a story of faith, hope and love. Bro. Maxey has gone from the brink of death to having a renewed sense of energy and his friends and family are inviting everyone in the community to celebrate life with them next weekend.
On July 6, Maxey received a double lung transplant at Vanderbilt Hospital.
It was faith that got him there and it was faith that brought him home from that procedure on Sept. 24.
Prayer chains and fund raisers immediately sprung into action when Maxey fell into a vegetative state for more than 20 days after his surgery.
According to his wife Allison, doctors were fearful that he would recover. Now that he is tube-free and resting at home in Martin, it can only be described as a miracle that brought him back from the verge of death.
The outpouring of food, faith and love the family has received from the community has been enough to bring the Maxey family back to completion.
As a token of great gratitude and love, family and friends have planned a celebration of life at Eastside Baptist Church in Martin on Saturday, Oct. 9.
There will be special music provided by local talents and a reception is planned. The event begins at 5:30 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 9.
“No words can express what my heart feels. We want everyone to come out so that we can love on them like they have for us,” Allison shared.
She said her husband is looking to God to determination if he will once again stand behind the pulpit that evening and preach the word and offer his story.
There will surprises in store for the community as well as the family as everyone is invited to share in the celebration of life.
Eastside Baptist Church is located at 529 K. St. in Martin. For additional information, contact Allison at 514-9155.
Everyone is welcome and encouraged to be a part of the miracle.
