Cornell Garrison: A COVID-19 Miracle

by | Mar 5, 2021

“Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me” is the experience of Nicholson Playground’s Assistant Center Supervisor Cornell Garrison.

In late March of 2020, Garrison struggled breathing and was very weak. He was rushed and admitted into West Jefferson Hospital to find bad news of a Covid-19 infected lung. The angel of death was at his bedside to take him to his eternal home, but his family’s faith was his saving grace. “My family told the doctor to do everything to save me and if I code. The staff wanted to pull the plug, and the doctor stated that [my family] was wasting [the hospital’s] time because I was not getting better,” wrote Garrison in his written testimonial. Not only was the Westbank Assistant Center Supervisor fighting for his life, but his mother fell hostage to Coronavirus as well. “She was next door to me in the ICU, and I didn’t even know it,” said Garrison.

The Lord called Cornell’s mother home but reigned a miracle on him like the dewfall with another chance of life that, as he describes, only God can give. Garrison returned to work on January 25. He is thankful to family, friends, and co-workers for continued prayers that strengthened him along his journey.
