Usmani Iddrisu is a Ghanaian woman suffering from breast cancer. She needs urgent medical attention as the cancer may spread to other parts of her body, but she cannot attain the help she needs as the amount of money she needs to pay as bills is beyond her means.
She is required to pay Gh¢6000 every week for the medication, which will prevent the cancer from spreading. She has undergone numerous treatments, which seemed not to work. Hence the doctors had to recommend a Herceptin injection which costs Gh¢6000 every three weeks.
In an interview with crimecheckfoundation she said:
I underwent three Chemotherapy sessions and surgeries, but there was no improvement. Doctors then recommended Herceptin injection as the only option to save my life. The injection is expensive, and I cannot afford it. I am pleading with you to come to my aid
