Mubo Ojo: Thriving beyond diagnosis

Transplant recipient, Mubo Ojo

I went through end stage kidney failure and was on dialysis for eight years. The initial diagnosis sent me into a two-year denial where I almost lost my life. But I had a compelling WHY to live which were my two little kids.

During the eight years of dialysis, I received my degree in Cybersecurity, and started a motivational speaking career as a coach. I have since received a new kidney, my second chance, and I wrote an eBook.

I’m a witness that one is able to thrive beyond diagnosis, and it doesn’t have to be the end of our existence. We have a whole life ahead, but we have to align our minds to believe that.

Wishing you all the best as you navigate your journey.
