The dilemma of actress Beverly Afaglo can be linked to the words of Jeremiah in Lamentations 5:7 which reads; “Our ancestors sinned, but they have died— and we are suffering the punishment they deserved!”
This is because both father and sister of the above-mentioned actress died of cancer and as a result, Beverly Afaglo is convinced beyond doubt that she’ll suffer from the same fate someday.
The actress, narrating her ordeal in an interview with Joy News’ MzGee, said her fears are hinged on the fact that the disease could be in her genes since both family members passed away after years of battling with the disease.
“My life is at risk as well because now, I can confirm that it’s in my blood, it’s in my genes. I mean my dad died of cancer as well as my sister. We are scared. She [my sister] went through all types of cancer, it’s sad, from her breast to her spine, to the blood, to the brain, to everywhere, it was tough.”
The wife of Choirmaster of defunct Praye music duo fame further advised Ghanaians to be serious about finding out more about the disease in order to seek early treatment if diagnosed.
“I think everybody, whatever you read online about cancer and how to prevent it, we must be serious about it because cancer comes in different forms and you won’t see it coming” she added.
As a reminder, Beverly Afaglo barely two months ago made Ghanaians privy via the popular photo sharing platform, Instagram about the sudden death of her sister after battling with cancer for 12 solid years.
