Ardent Asamoah Gyan fan quits football over dying mother


Summary short_text

The boy, Albert Aburipoore, learned his mother, Susana, was dying with chronic kidney disease after she had been to four health facilities in the region before she was finally referred to the Tamale Teaching Hospital in the Northern Region where she has been on haemodialysis since 2019.
Her husband, Atingane, added: "In the beginning, we thought it was pregnancy. Several tests were run at the Upper East Regional Hospital. Nothing was found after the tests had been done. Later, they diagnosed diabetes. We visited a number of facilities. Her legs and stomach were swollen. As she was not recovering, we went back to the regional hospital. They referred us to the Tamale Teaching Hospital."
"Asamoah Gyan is my idol. But it has been difficult to play football outside there with friends and be happy even when you score a goal or when your team wins when you always remember your mother is weeping at home because she is not well and your dad is sad because he is too poor to help her. I feel it is better to always stay around her even if I cannot help her," the boy said.
