Feb 15, 2017 – I Discovered My Wife Has Breast Cancer On Our Wedding Night – Heartbroken Husband Seeks Financial Help For Wife
35-year-old Unemployed graduate, Olakunle Babalola is seeking help for his wife, who is down with cancer of the breast.
Mrs Babalola Tolulope Taiwo, a twin and a 27- year-old final year undergraduate, has stopped school because of her condition.
Babalola told The Nation that his wife needs assistance to enable her complete her treatment.
He said she was diagnosed of breast cancer in 2014, a week after their wedding.
“I noticed the lump on her left breast on our wedding night. Since then, both of us have been struggling to survive. The little money on me was used to commence laboratory tests and some palliative treatments. She had already become pregnant before the commencement of her first six courses of Chemotherapy at Lagos University Teaching Hospital (LASUTH), Ikeja,”.
“God really helped her to keep the baby intact, despite the chemotherapy. She took the chemotherapy every three weeks for six months. After the chemotherapy, she was scheduled for mastectomy of the Lt (left) Breast. Afterwards, she was asked to do immunotherapy and histopathology. She did one of the tests; the other test of N50, 000 was not done due to lack of funds. During those times, my business crashed. Money stopped flowing in. That treatment lasted for about nine months.”
Later, Tolulope started having re-occurrence of cancer, and this time very painful. She reported back at LASUTH, where another six courses of chemotherapy with some strong pain killers were prescribed.
“She took the first, second, third, and fourth chemotherapy treatment. The consultant stopped giving her the drugs when she went for the fifth course because the drugs were not working for her. That was when a new course of diagnoses was recommended. “She started fresh diagnoses to determine the nature of the tissue and the type of cancer last November. This is both emotionally and financially draining,”Babalola bemoaned.
Babalola took in a deep breath after narrating his ordeal, but emotion betrayed him.
He said: “My people, the road has been rough. She is at Lakeshore Cancer Health Centre in Victoria Island (VI), Lagos, for further investigations and treatment. We need your help great people of Nigeria.
Please assist her in getting her life back. If she stops treatment, she might die. Please help her by helping me to pay her hospital bills.”
