Anna Aboagyewa Koranteng, Joy's mother

She has been described by her friends and teachers as an intelligent child.

It is her dream to become a doctor one day but that dream is gradually fading away at the Children’s ward at the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital where six-year-old Joy Koranteng has been on admission.

Little Joy has been battling acute myeloid leukaemia (AML), a type of cancer of the myeloid line of blood cells, characterized by the rapid growth of abnormal white blood cells that build up in the bone marrow and interfere with the production of normal blood cells.

Joy’s family is desperately in need of about $50,000 to get a cure for her in South Africa. 

Watch the report below:
