At the age of 27, she had the news that would be blessed with her first child. Due to complications of preeclampsia at 25 weeks, she was told she had to choose between her life or her daughter, Priya, she chose the life of her daughter. With God’s grace and mercy, he was able to see them both through the delivery. Priya was born weighing only 1 pound 4 ounces. With both being hospitalized with life threatening complications, they were separated immediately without Tianna being able to see her baby. They both had to endure multiple treatments, surgeries, and obstacles before being able to reunite together. After a month, Tianna was finally able to reunite with Priya in the neonatal intensive care unit where Priya was recovering for 4 and half more months. Throughout this process Tianna was enduring the complications of her preeclampsia and eclampsia, which included the main illness as end stage kidney failure.
She fought end stage kidney failure for three and half years. She faced death numerous times and prevailed time and time again. Throughout all of this she was still able to raise her three year old daughter, Priya. With doing this, she was able to motivate and influence friends, family and others around the world with her courage and determination. Her main focus along her journey was to be an admirable mother to Priya. She was on and off the transplant list for a new kidney because of other unprecedented medical conditions. She kept fighting hard along the way to continue to inspire others and her daughter.
We are devastated to share that Tianna passed away on Sunday January the 3rd. She was a loving and exceptional mother, daughter, aunt, niece, and friend to all. We are asking for your support in raising at least $12,000 to help with the financial burden of Funeral expenses and raising her daughter Priya. Please consider helping out her loved ones through this difficult time as they navigate this tragedy. Donation will go directly to her mother, Melva Miller.
