Read a little detail on young Michael below;
Hi. My name is Michael Kofi Asiamah. I am 13years old. Like any teenager, I enjoy spending time with my friends and family and exploring my hobbies.
I am a songwriter. Specifically, Christian rap. I have many original songs that I’ve shared at events. My friends also call me Sark because there’s no Sarkodie song I cannot rap verbatim.
At school, I have been consistently recognized as one of the best overall students. I’m always happy to take on new challenges and my dream is to become one of the world’s best and coolest neurosurgeons and Christian rappers of all time.
In 2020 I begun having regular headaches. Doctors thought they could be caused by strain on my eyes. My vision also became slightly blurry and after seeing an eye doctor I was prescribed eyeglasses.
While this helped with the blurry vision, the headaches became worse causing me to feel sick and vomit all the time. I also gained a lot of weight in a short time.
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. T
he 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.
