Fashion designer appeals for GHC15,000 support to treat liver cancer

Princela Agbetornyo, 25, has been battling with the condition for barely 12 months

Princela Agbetornyo, a local fashion designer, 25, a resident of Malam in Accra needs GHC15,000 to treat hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), a health condition that occurs when a tumour grows on the liver.

She has been battling with the condition for barely 12 months.

According to her family friend, Elizabeth Addai, Princela was first taken to a public health facility in Gbawe Weija a community within the Greater Accra region but the facility was not able to detect the HCC.

“Her condition was worsening until someone recommended Battor Catholic Hospital in the Volta Region” Elizabeth noted.

At Battor Catholic Hospital, she underwent surgery to remove her urine and faeces after which she was referred to Krole bu Teaching Hospital for further treatment.

She was discharged by Korlebu after another surgery was conducted on her to remove her urine and faeces “because she cannot do that by herself,” Elizabeth narrated.

“She was discharged but because there’s no progress we sent her to a private hospital (Healthy Soul Medical Centre),” Elizabeth said.

Princela was diagnosed with HCC at the Healthy Soul Medical Centre in Accra.

According to the hospital, a sum of GHC15,000 is needed to treat the condition but the family was able to pay only GHC1,300, remaining a balance of GHC13,300 only.

The Agbetornyo family said they’ve run out of money and cannot raise the said amount.

They are therefore calling on benevolent persons, and organisations at home and abroad to help save the life of Princela Agbetornyo.
