Meet The 12-Years-Old Boy Who Was Born Without An Anus

Meet The 12-Years-Old Boy Who Was Born Without An Anus

We never know how strong we are until being strong is the only choice we have, we can never have healed without sickness.

Life has its own way of defining who we are or who we become at its own peril.

Today, GhanaCNN.com brings you a story of a father who has vowed to sell all he had worked for just to enable his son to pass stool properly as all human beings do. Thus; Meet The 12-Years-Old Boy Who Has No Anus:

Parents of the young boys are poor but have tried all that they could just to see their son well and healthy again. They have sold all that they had including their roofing just to see their son well again. Now they live in fear of rain.

Since the parents sold all that they laid hands on just for their son’s surgical operations, they went broke and couldn’t seek advanced treatment for the boy that could have secured the poor boy a place of relief.

Since the advanced surgical operation wasn’t enough, the least they could do is to watch their son pass stool through his mouth.

Thus he eats from his mouth and passes feces through the same mouth. This is a very unpleasant situation but that s what poverty has thrown at them.

The poor boy has undergone three different surgical operations but the doctors have failed to help him secure an anus and they have recommended to the parents to take their son to a big hospital in the city.

The problem the parents now face is that they owe banks and friends and are left with nothing that can be used to take their ward to the city for experts to seek their son’s wellbeing.

Life is one big truck that carries a lot of sorrow, disappointment, setbacks, pain, hard times, and it leaves us with nothing but to have hope, faith, and a lot more we have to expect every day.
