"I Was Told Not To Go To Church" Woman With A Rare Disease Narrates Her Painful Story

A woman with a rare disease narrates her painful story on how she acquired it and the challenges she has been facing in her life.

Emma Mujawayezu, the woman, was born healthy just like any other child. She got the eerie disease while in secondary school when her neck faced up all of a sudden and efforts to return to the normal position were futile.

Emma said that she was forced to quit school because of her her condition. She revealed that she now depends on her parents to do everything for her.

"I got an illness out of nowhere and found my neck bent. It started on its own and my neck turned into this,'' she said during a interview with Afrimax.

When she went to church, people used to stigmatise her so her mother advised her not to go to church. Her husband also left her pregnant after her condition got worse and he has never bothered to know how their child is doing.

She is now urging well-wishers to help her get treated since the medication is very expensive for her family to afford.
