Agnes Dogbe a 43-year-old Ghanaian mother of two living with breast cancer has been put in a tight condition as her landlord also wants her out with immediate effect.
According to a report gathered by YEN.com.gh, the lady who lives at Kasoa indicates that her landlord has already taken the keys to her room demanding that she vacates because her rotten breast gives off a foulsmell.
The 43-year-old mother says they struggle to eat and are unable to keep their home as her health condition has reached a deteriorating stage with no help on the horizon.
“I have no one to help me. My family has abandoned me. Even the father of my children is nowhere to be found,” she indicates.
Agnes used to sell sachet water along the street to fend for her family. According to her, her busy schedule and the need to make ends meet distracted her from noticing the gradually swelling breast from the onset.
In her own narration, “When I realized it had grown big. I can’t say I noticed it at an early stage. As a mother, my priority is the upkeep of my children.”
The woman further explains that out of her sachet water business, she used to save some funds to provide for the children's school fees but currently, feeding the family alone is a great difficulty.
Meanwhile, Korboi and Twyana Balla, an African-American entrepreneurial couple from Minneapolis, have been able to raise $1.1 million to rebuild their enterprise after protesters of the Black Lives Matter movement burned it down.
According to Blackbusiness.com, Korboi and Twyana narrated that they had been saving for many years to put up the brand new business and were yet to actually open it to the public.
When the husband and wife woke up to the news, they were heartbroken. Korboi recounts the words, "I don't know what we're going to do. It hurts, man. It's not fair, it's not right. We've been working so hard for this place. It's not just for me, it's for my family."
