When I was young, I loved to play football. One day I was playing football at school and tried to head the ball. It hit my upper eyelid. Since then, I couldn't see correctly. I was taken to many places, including hospitals, but I gradually lost sight.

Sorry to hear Eritten and Jennifer's story however I'm surprised Neurosurgeons and ophthalmologists in Ghana couldn't help save their sights. Maybe they might have had a problem with their occipital lobes in the brain region, affecting the optical nerves. Erriten/Jennifer don't give up. Keep on seeking knowledge and reach out to health charities for support. Inspiring stories
