Nigel Allan always lived by the motto of “Never, ever, ever give up.”
Allan made his living as a motivation speaker who would recall his struggles in life dealing with an abusive father and how he turned to God to find strength. He was a man with a plan and had big ideas and even bigger dreams for the future.
However, after being diagnosed with a rare lung disease in 2011, he spiraled into serious depression. Even after receiving a necessary lung transplant, Allan spent weeks in and out of the hospital and he realized he would never be entirely back to his “normal” self again. It was in that moment that Nigel Allan lost the hope that kept him going.
