¢60k in 6 days: Breast cancer patient finally goes for treatment

Six days ago, Agnes was imprisoned by poverty and trapped by disease.

Every moment was spent in unbearable pain which made her unable to sit up on her own.

To literally add insult to injury, her landlord served her with an eviction notice, because her rent had expired and she was in no position to pay her bills or cater for her two sons, aged 10 and 11.

Her husband was nowhere to be found and her siblings had stated clearly they were in no position to support her get medical treatment.

Agnes was living at the mercy of a few kind friends, who themselves lacked the finances to help her get healthcare.

That was the story told on Prime Morning on JoyPrime on Thursday, June 4, 2020.

Ghanaians heard, were moved, and responded. In a matter of six days, donations were received in excess of ¢60,000.

“We received donations from Ghanaians in Iceland, Netherlands, Denmark, Switzerland, UK, Germany, France, USA, Italy and every corner of the globe,” says an excited Daniel Dadzie, host of Prime Morning.

Speaking on Newsnight on JoyNews TV, Mr. Dadzie said the funds will go into medical expenses, provision for caregivers, upkeep of the children including paying for her rent and food.

Meanwhile, Agnes is currently on admission at the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital. Tests are being done to determine the details of her illness.

Joy Prime and the Multimedia Group would love to express their profound gratitude to all the lovely viewers and listeners who responded to the call and donated so generously.
