Amoako Sarah Boateng 's story
My name is Amoako Sarah Boateng and I come from Accra, Ghana. I am 22 years and I just started the Presbyterian Women's College of education. I want to be a teacher in future. In April 2019, I was diagnosed with a severe brain tumor that is causing me to lose my sight completely.
On October 2018, I lost vision in my left eye. I went to the Delcielo optical service but they could not diagnose what the cause for the lost vision in my left eye was. They referred me to the Korle-bu Teaching Hospital but Korle-Bu also could not tell what the problem was and it was the time for me to go to school so I left for school.
While I was in school, I realised that the vision in my right eye was becoming blurrier and blurrier. I explained it to my sister and she recommended Dr. Agarwal. When I went to see him, he requested an MRI scan and the diagnosis was that I have a brain tumor that has been there for many years. From the symptoms they were making reference to, I realised that the tumor has been developing for a long time. My menstrual cycle has been stopped for about six years, the headaches are very serious and I feel very weak and can not stand on my feet for very long.
The diagnosis center told me that I can get my treatment in India at the Apollo Hospital. My medical report was sent to the hospital in India and they sent me a referral letter with a treatment plan and an estimated cost of $15,000 for treatment, meals, transportation (including flight tickets), VISA, accommodation (in India), and others for me and a companion. The Doctors say I need to get the surgery as soon as possible, in the next month or two. I do not have enough time. My family is doing all they can to help with all local preparations, but I have exhausted all avenues to raise my funds and so I am pleading with you to help me raise this money.
