Life can sometimes be overburdening. Linda, a young lady in Ghana, has recounted her struggle with homelessness and deteriorating health which often leaves her dizzy and weak.
She has fibroid, a medical condition that has worsened her plight, but she can't afford surgery because of extreme financial constraints.
Fibroids are tumors that develop in or on the walls of the uterus. They are common and not typically cancerous, according to Medical News Today.
Struggle with homelessness
In an interview with Crime Check Foundation on the Health Check Series, Linda disclosed that she became homeless after her landlord threw her things outside. She failed to pay her GH40.00 rent, she explained.

The beleaguered young lady mentioned that she needs urgent help for treatment to restore her life to normalcy.
