In an interview with sports website, his mother revealed that Ben white had a low immune system and would easily contract diseases especially pneumonia. She added that Ben spent several months in hospital because of his sensitive health status.

"His immune system was not working. If somebody sneezed, he would end with pneumonia. He had appendicitis and he didn't come around from that for a while".

"He was in hospital for much of his young life, for months at a time. They said, take him home. He is probably safer at home because of the bugs around hospitals".

Despites the health challenges, Ben White had dreamed of becoming a professional footballer and he was encouraged by doctors to partake in sports to build up his immune system. Of course this is a very difficult experience but For Ben White to overcome this obstacle and become the person he is today, it teaches us very important life lessons.
