I was once suicidal, says Kano student who stepped up, studied law.

For eleven years, Hauwa Yusuf has been battling with an ailment which makes her unable to walk, or stand for more than five minutes. It was detected when she was 14, she said.
“I was in SS1 at the former Al-Ansar Girls College now Zara Nanono Memorial College when my parents observed that I was having problems with my legs.”
Hauwa was first taken to Dala National Orthopedic Hospital, but her parents were told that the disease has nothing to do with bones and therefore they were referred to Aminu Kano Teaching Hospital. She told Daily Trust Saturday that she underwent series of tests before the disease was finally detected. Hauwa is suffering from Limb Girdle Muscular Dystrophy (LGMD). It is a progressive sickness because it is increasing, she said.
