BET’s “Sistas” & “Zatima” Star Devale Ellis Speaks About Near Death Experience

Devale Ellis Sistas

“Sistas” & “Zatima” recently got very vulnerable on his podcast with wife Khadeen!!

The two spoke about a near death experience concerning their son back in October and this episode of the podcast was an amazing and I inspiring listen.

Devale shared on his Instagram:

“On October 15th I had one of the worst experiences of my life in the emergency room at the Children’s Hospital of Atlanta. Kay & I were sent there from Emery with the fear that Kairo was suffering from appendicitis. When we arrived we were met with challenges that could have cost Kairo his life and me my freedom. Luckily the security handled me with the desired empathy you would expect from an ER trauma nurse, and Kairo was seen (4 hours later) after a huge outburst and series of threats.

No parent or child should have to deal with what we dealt with simply because a nurse wishes to take liberties with a child’s care. I felt helpless and shameful as a father. My sole job is to protect my family at all costs, but being compliant in that moment could have cost my child his life. So I chose to say, “F*ck It!” I caused a scene. It was embarrassing but I had no other choice. One of the worst feelings I’ve ever had in my life was thinking that I couldn’t help my family. I’m not proud, but I was ready to sacrifice it all… And I’ll do it again.
