I am here to solicit fund for my father's medical treatment. He was the bread winner of our family and I am his first son. I graduated last year from the Mechanical Engineering department of Ladoke Akintola University, Ogbomosho, Nigeria and recently completed my National Youth Service. While still searching for a better job opportunity, I currenty work on my own as a automobile Mechanic and because of my dad's condition, I had to take charge of caring for the family and there is little he could do to finance his treatment with my earnings from is mechanic work.
The current diagnosis is Space occupying Lession of the brain (SOL), also known as Brain Tumor.
How it all started:
It all started mid last year when he came home from work just to complained of headache and all the family did was giving home medication until October when the headache became so severe with accompanied speech impairment.
We kept to home medication because of financial reasons but considering the severeity of his pain and his inability to talk, he was taken to a hospital. The hospital requested CT scan and MRI but we only managed to raise money for the CT SCAN and it turned out that he had a tumor growing in his brain. Howerver, 6months after the CT scan, the MRI is still pending for lack of money and unfortunately the old man has also lost his sight in addition to the speech impairment. Last week a kind hearted family friend got to know about his condition and she assisted with the MRI. Based on the MRI report, the tumor is increasing so drastically and the surgery need to be done as soon as possible. Attached is the report of MRI, the CT report and his picture.
Why we need your support:
If within 6 months he is having speech problem and loss of sight many things can go wrong in twinkle of an eye. It clear that the only definitive treatment is surgery and subsequent chemotherapy.
This is how your donations will help:
The surgery and chemotherapy will cost about 7million Nigeria Naira (USD20,000). And all donation from this campaign will go for this.
No amount is too small to save this soul! May Almighy God multiply for you every cent that you give for this seriously sick father of 4.
