Aisling Gray was attacked by an intruder after she got up to investigate a noise at her house in the Springfield Road area at around 3am on Saturday.
"I thought I heard my mummy walking about the kitchen, so I was going down to get her to see if she was ok," she explained, adding that her mother is receiving chemotherapy.
She found the back door open and a man standing in the kitchen, but he ran out of the house.
However, a second intruder appeared from behind the kitchen door. Thinking the man was trying to get upstairs to where her sick mother and three children were sleeping, Ms Gray tried to block his way.
"He gripped me and I was trying to push him back out again because he was pushing me up the hall," she said.
"All I was thinking was why was he pushing me up the hall when the back door was open?"
I feared for my mummy’s safety, and for my kid’s safety. I didn’t fear for my own at all but now when I’m in bed now, I do for myself, well for everybody in here.
The man then attacked her, punching her in the face, before running out of the house empty handed leaving Ms Gray badly shaken by the ordeal.
"I was stunned and then everything just happened so quick. It was crazy, it doesn't seem real."
Ms Gray could not see either of the men's faces, but believes she may have been able to identify them.
"I'm sorry I didn't just turn round and turn the light on because I'm sure that I probably would've recognised who they were," she told UTV.
Steven Corr, Sinn Féin councillor for Ballymurphy, said robbers are targeting the vulnerable and ill in the area.
"[It's happening when] someone is lying ill in bed and somebody takes it upon themselves to break into their house, [and] physically assault someone in their pursuit of medication drugs," he added.
