A Ghanaian gentleman simply identified as Ranger's wife sadly developed mental illness just a year after she successfully graduated from university with her degree in October 2019.
In a personal narration Ranger recounted to YEN.com.gh, the heartbroken gentleman indicated that the problem began in August 2020 and since that day, his wife has not been able to take in any food to date.
"She was completely mad but my faith tells me that she is not. I called my Pastor friends and we prayed and overcame the madness. Then another sickness came and we overcame that one too. All this accompanied by not eating food since August 7, 2020 but with prayer we overcame again," he said.
According to Ranger, his wife got out of control again on January 9, just when it was thought that the situation was under control.
She reportedly had severe seizures and was in a coma for weeks until an MRI scan was done for her and it was detected that she is suffering from a brain tumour and autoimmune disease.
"Right now my wife who was looking for a job after school is completely paralyzed and cannot walk again," he said.
Ranger further disclosed:
She is a Zambian citizen and at this stage, I want to fly her back home (Zambia) to prepare her for the treatment in South Africa which is closer to Zambia. We are currently in the Volta region and was just discharged from St Anthony's hospital in the Ketu North of the Volta Region on March 3, 2021.
Ranger was given an estimate of $24000 as the total cost for the surgery and rehabilitation after the surgery.
He seeks assistance to raise the amount as he has lost his job because of this problem and has exhausted all his savings on medical bills and stuff.
He can be reached on 0247921299.
In a report by Abandaily.com, it is indicated that Adom-Ba was able to finish BECE in 2012 but had been unable to continue education until 2016 for lack of money.
