Eight years after being paralysed by stroke, veteran actor, Kojo Dadson of ‘Home Sweet Home’ is working on his possible recovery.
The renowned Ghanaian actor was confined to a wheelchair for months with a partly deformed face while he struggled with speech.
Dadson has since been juggling to cope with his new way of life after suffering from stroke in 2012.
Despite his deteriorated health, the ailing actor has managed to learn certain basic skills to go about his daily engagements with little support.
In a latest video showing his current state, the actor does not appear physically fit but seems to be responding to treatment.
Resilient 68-year-old Dadson has overcome difficulties such as speaking, dressing-up and walking with the aid of a stick and his family.
TV3’s Konxept Worae paid him a visit to ascertain the current health status of the veteran actor.
At the time of the visit, Dadson was on his way to his usual massage therapy at the Mab International Hospital at Nyamekye in Accra.
Doctors have advised that the ailing actor visits the hospital twice a week for his massage therapy.
However, Dadson reveals that he’s unable to follow through with the recommendation because of the financial burden.
The massage therapy is very critical to further improve his condition and it plays a major role in his key recovery process.
Determined to bounce back to active life and to his profession, Dadson has been doing the impossible aside adhering to his routine medical check-ups.
His story has been highlighted in the video below.
YEN.com.gh previously reported that the Minister of Creative Arts and Tourism, Barbara Oteng, has reached out to veteran actor Kofi Laing, better known as 'Kohwe' following reports about his worsening ill health.
The aged actor bemoaned his condition despite having worked hard to bring smiles to the faces of many Ghanaians 'Kohw'’.
'Kohwe' noted the Ghana film industry was not financially rewarding at the time he and his colleagues were very relevant actors.
