YOLO Star Drogba Heads Abroad for Demyelination Treatment

In March, John Peasah publicly disclosed his struggles with demyelination disease. According to his sister, the actor's symptoms first appeared during the filming of the YOLO series finale

John Peasah, popularly known as Drogba from the Ghanaian teen series Y.O.L.O, is seeking public support to fund his medical treatment abroad.

In a lengthy Instagram post, the actor revealed that his doctors have advised him to consider seeking medical treatment outside of Ghana due to his battle with demyelination disease. This condition damages the protective covering surrounding nerve fibers in the brain, optic nerves, and spinal cord, leading to progressive muscle stiffness, excruciating pain, impaired vision, and poor body coordination.

“Hello friends and family, It’s been a while you heard from me due to a few challenges with my treatment and the need to seek for treatment abroad as I have been referred by my doctors. I want to thank everyone who have supported me to this stage. Thank you for showing concern and support. As I have been referred to receive further treatment abroad, I look forward to receiving your committed support to help me receive the needed treatment for this neurological condition I’m struggling with. God bless you all for your help to save my life,” the actor wrote on his Instagram
