Prayer got me through it - Phumeza

Actress and television personality Phumeza Mdambe says one of the most challenging things she and her family has ever been through was when her son went blind.

Speaking to True Love Magazine Phumeza says: "My son Milo was diagnosed with bilateral retinoblastoma at 16 months." The bilateral retinoblastoma affected Mpilo's eyes and in 2015 he had his eye removed.

"On January 29 2015, Milo had his right eye removed. We learnt about prosthetic eyes, which look natural. We bought them for him - they were inserted six weeks later after the swelling had subsided," she told the magazine.

Phumeza says even though this has been one of her most difficult times, her husband, musician Shota's support plus prayer have carried her through.

"Prayer got me through it all. That's how I maintained my sanity. God is great," she adds.
