below is a statement was written about Michael Kofi Asiamah’s condition
Two weeks ago, I was diagnosed with a brain tumor sitting in the middle of my brain. Doctors told my mother I would need two surgeries urgently. Due to high pressure in my head(intracranial pressure) causing damage to my brain, an emergency surgery was done within 24 hours of my diagnosis and a tube was placed to drain the fluid from my brain and stop the headaches.
The second surgery to remove the tumor is scheduled for Tuesday, 6th April, 2021. Due to the placement of the tumor, doctors are unsure they will be able to surgically remove all of it without fatal injuries.
The part of the brain affected controls my breathing and other critical body functions. The plan is to undergo radiotherapy in the weeks and months following surgery to shrink the rest of the tumor that can’t be removed.
