Mariam Wanzala, a mother of two from Butere, has been left inconsolable after her husband left her to raise her children alone.
The 39-year-old nurse was once lively and active before a deadly disease robbed her of her sight and reduced her to moving around using a cane.

The lady used to be a nurse in Eldoret before discovering she had a life-threatening brain tumour that needed to be removed urgently, Citizen TV reported.
Mariam went through her first operation in 2014 with hopes she would recuperate and go back to living her life but everything went south shortly after the procedure.

“I was born normal and was not blind when growing up. I had a scan which showed I had a brain tumour. I was then told I needed to undergo an operation” the mother of two narrated.
After developing complications later, Mariam learnt she had free fluid in her head and needed to be operated on again.
By that time, she had lost her sight and was fighting for her life. Despite all this, the dedicated mum did not lose hope.
The lady whose past seven years have been harrowing had to stop working as she was still unwell and blind.
Her husband left afterwards after learning Mariam was never going to regain her sight.
“He told me to take my youngest child, pick a cup and start begging in the streets so I could be helped,” Mariam said.
The 39-year-old walked from one hospital to another hoping maybe a doctor would manage to return her eyesight but money was an issue.
She returned to her ancestral home in Butere to live with her mother.
Her 60-year-old mum Khadija Wanzala took up the challenge and care for Mariam and her two kids without complaining or fussing.

YEN.com.gh sighted a highly inspirational Q and A session that was conducted with Nana on the Facebook handle of Edward Asare.
Nana indicated that while growing up, she always wished to become a lawyer and although she could not pursue that after SHS at Aburi Presbyterian Sec. Tech, carpentry was the option left to pursue.
