Healthline Team catches up with tumour patient

Vodafone Ghana’s Healthline team has visited Veronica Kumako a middle-aged trader, who underwent a facial tumour surgery courtesy of Vodafone's Healthline programme.

Healthline, a programme, which seeks to educate, inform and demystify various myths on health related conditions, went to the rescue of Kumako.

Veronica expressed gratitude to the telecommunication giant, revealing that her life was more than beautiful now.

Following a decade of misery, the cheerful Veronica said she is now empowered to socialize, laugh and work to provide for herself and her son.

In a release in Accra, before the successful surgery, Veronica lived with a tumour that affected her eyes, disfigured her face and made breathing difficult.

Her condition made her a liability to her immediate family, neighbours and customers alike.

“I started feeling some swelling in my nostrils at age 24, three years later, I couldn’t breathe well and later a small boil appeared closer to my eye.

“I didn't approach it with seriousness until it became so big that I had to go to Battor, where I was transferred to Korle Bu” said Veronica, on the award-winning television show, Vodafone Healthline.

“When my condition didn’t get better after five years, my husband absconded and left me to my fate.”

According to the release Kumako said initially she couldn’t do her business in the market because no one wanted to come close to her but now, everything had changed.

“Now my heart is at rest and I give Vodafone Ghana the credit,” she added.

Healthline, since 2011, has catered for the full cost of surgeries for many financially challenged Ghanaians suffering from various health conditions.

Season 6 of the 13-episode series airs on UTV at 9pm on Mondays, with a repeated version on TV3 on Saturdays at 6:30pm.
