My name is Happiness Okekeni Destiny. I am 31 years old. I noticed few months after my wedding in 2013, a lump on my left breast. It wasn't there before I married but appeared few months into my wedding. I was really scared and concerned. I noticed sometimes it increases in size and sometimes it decreases in size. I visited the teaching hospital with my mum in 2016 two years after I had my baby.
Wow I am full of gratitude.It's exactly 2years today I was involved in a ghastly accident with multiple fracture of my right femur.
...So on this fateful day at 10.30 pm 4th November 2016 on my way home just 5mins from my house this drunken driver hit me hard, it was head on collision. It was a bad day
It hasn’t been an easy journey for me because I thought I was pregnant with child. Having to deal with the loss of 3 children to different medical conditions wasn’t easy for me as a mother but the sight of the protruding stomach brought back a little bit of hope. for almost 2 years nothing happened and I had to go to the hospital to check up and run a scan. It was during this scan that I was told that I wasn’t pregnant but it was Fibroid. They spoke to me about the symptoms and I realized that I’ve had this thing for more than 7 years without knowing what it was. My devastation was indeed unbearable
because by this time my husband had left me insinuating that what I was carrying in my tommy was the reason for his misfortunes in life. I was left with no one to turn to, no money to fund the surgery and I soon became an object of scorn. Due to pain discomfort it caused me, I couldn’t even continue with my small business and my health had since deteriorated. I used to be very fat but I guess this thing has taken away everything from me. I’ve been called many names and accused of things I’ve not done but I always believed that help will come someday. I learnt about the @benjaminolowojebutufdn and the free surgery, I came with the hope that my help has finally come. I was booked for surgery and I couldn’t believe it was free not until the surgery was done and it was successful. There are a lot of women going through the pains of Fibroid and I want them to know that there’s a way for everyone. I wept when I woke up to see the Fibroid
