Chief of Staff’s Political Affairs Director saves life of boy with brain tumour

Political Affairs Director at the office of the Chief of Staff, Frank Aseidu Bekoe (Protozoa), has facilitated for a surgery that has saved the life of a little boy who was diagnosed with a brain tumour.

The mother of the two-year-old Jaden Appiah recently returned to Mr Bekoe to show appreciation for the help offered the family that saved their son.

According to the mother of the little boy, Aiesha Mohammed, when doctors said her son was suffering from Post fossa brain tumour located at the 4th ventricle of the brain, a condition which threatened Jaden’s life, it took the support of the benevolent politician for her son to undergo a successful surgery at the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital.

According to the medical report, little Appiah’s condition affected the brain stem making it difficult for him to walk. Doctors had recommended that a surgery be done to save her son’s life.

She said before meeting Protozoa, she had reached out to many for help, but was turned down until someone directed her to Mr Bekoe whom she described as a ‘good Samaritan’ at the Presidency.

Aiesha narrated that Mr Bekoe patiently listened to her and carefully studied Jaden’s hospital documents and eventually forwarded them to the Chief of Staff’s office for immediate assistance.

Through the intervention of Frank Asiedu Bekoe, little Appiah has successfully undergone a surgery and is doing well.

Aeisha Mohammed, full of smiles has since reported back to the office with thanksgiving and appreciation to the chief of staff and the Political office for saving the life of her child.
