A young Ghanaian lady, Ewurama Asare Takyi Danquah who is suffering from a disease called multiple sclerosis is appealing for financial help to undergo surgery.
Ewurama Danquah, 29, was compelled to put her life on hold after she was diagnosed with the disease in 2011 and her condition has since deteriorated.
The disease which has worsened over the years has rendered her bedridden and impaired her speech.
The former student of Archbishop Porter Girls' Secondary School (APGSS) urgently needs $50,000 (GHc287,854.10) for treatments, medications and other therapies.
In a heart-rending video online, Ewurama Danquah who is based in Cape Coast appeals for financial assistance for treatment to restore her failing health.
Meanwhile, a GoFundMe and mobile money accounts have been created for philanthropic organisations and people to contribute their widow's mite to her treatment.
