After losing both father and sister to cancer, actress Beverly Afaglo has disclosed her fear of being prone to the same disease.
Beverley, in narrating her ordeal in an interview with JoyNews’ MzGee, said her fears are founded on the fact that the disease could be genetic since both family members died from 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, may his soul rest in peace, and my sister as well, 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 Praye fame went on to advise Ghanaians to be more intent on finding out more about the disease in order to receive 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”
Two months ago, she shared the disheartening news about the death of her sister on her Instagram page, indicating she gave up the ghost after battling with the disease for more than a decade.
