It is often said that life is full of uncertainties and anything can happen at any time in life. Being it sickness, death or a major set back. But in all these, life should always be lived and enjoyed to its fullest.
This is the story of ex Ghanaian footballer, Manuel Junior Agogo who suffered a debilitating stroke in 2015, its been two years and it seems the 38-year-old footballer is getting well judging from his recent photos.
He opened up his predicament in an interview on BBC in 2015. His stroke led to another condition called Aphasia–a condition associated with difficulty in using language.
The former black stars forward struggled with words in an interview on BBC four during the World Stroke Day, a day to raise awareness on Aphasia on 29th October 2017.
Junior Agogo noted that even though he had thoughts but could not express them verbally due to the stroke. “I had thoughts but where is my voice man?” he said in the interview.
It is on record that during his most difficult moment, no lady was around to comfort him. It was his mom who stood behind him during that rough time. A lesson to us all–never despise your mother because of women!
Junior Agogo is now doing well and always hanging out with friends and family and never forgets to visit the hospital for his routine therapy and checkup.
