Cancer disfigures head of 2-year old, sticks mother with ¢12,000 bill
Cancerous cells work tirelessly with destructive
creativity to disfigure his forehead and skull
until two-year old Bright looks anything but

It has been like this for about a year after his
parents spotted a small boil on his forehead and
banished the swelling as a non-entity.

But the boil boiled with other ideas. Morning,
noon and night, the cancerous tumor broke down
issues and bore through with cruel determination
of a fall army worm.

One eye has been severely punched to make way for
expansion works of the dangerous cells. The eye
drips with a whitish-yellow discharge denying
Bright even the right to shed clear tears.

The other eye is swelling too, an obvious target
for the insatiable destruction going on in the
boy's body.

And then there is this other 'small matter' of a
big tummy. That one was when a small boy threw a
stone which hit his abdomen, her mother says.

It has been swelling since, leaving Bright with a
shiny stomach.  Stone at the abdomen? Stone at the

Bright closet lookalike is extra-terrestrial
creatures found only on Hollywood screen of
imaginative alien movies.

Her mother - a single mother - was directed to
Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital when she first reported
the growth at a health center at Battor in the
Volta region.

But poverty undermined her ability to take the
directive seriously because seriously is an
adjective for money.

When she finally mustered courage to go to the
hospital, the doctors at Korle-Bu told her, her
son needs chemotherapy and some
medical investigations.

Complex medical terms whittled down to mean Bright
needs 12,000 cedis.

And so she came back home and carries her boy
behind her back. The boy holds on to her mother
like a cliff-hanger situation. She is the only one
he knows to care enough to hold him and hug him.

And if he does not get 12,000 cedis, Bright may
one day no longer hug her. She may hold him, but
he won't hold her back.

To help Bright, kindly follow these details;
