A 44-year-old woman, Aderonke Funmilola Afolayan, who has been diagnosed with chronic kidney disease is seeking N10 million, for a kidney transplant.The Lagos State-born Aderonke has been battling for her life since April, which has crippled her movement.
Aderonke said with N85, 000 dialysis, which she does thrice a week at the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital (LASUTH), her family has exhausted all savings and her children have dropped out of school.
She said: “ Please good people of Nigeria, I need you to help me. I don’t want to die and leave my children. They can’t even go to school again, because there is no money to pay their school fees.
“Please help me out, my husband and family have tried all they could to make sure I am alive. Presently, I can’t even afford the dialysis more than once a week and it’s really affecting me. I have been told that transplant is the only way out now, which costs N10 million.”A Chemistry report from LASUTH signed by Dr. A.O Dada, showed that she has severely reduced kidney function which is at stage 4.
A media and publicity officer of Moran Media concept, Mr. Ranti Jacobs, a fundraiser for Aderonke’s financial help, in a letter sent to The Guardian, stated that all her savings have been spent to save her life, while her health keeps deteriorating.
“We ask for your donation which can be paid directly into her account: 0243322209 Gtbank Aderonke Funmilola Afolayan” he said.
