April 15, 2016 – Nigerian Woman Diagnosed With Left Breast Cancer, Abimbola Olasode Needs Help
Meet 49-year-old Abimbola Olasode, a married mother of 3 who is currently battling stage 4 breast cancer.
She needs 8 session of chemotherapy but the problem is that she has spent all her life savings on the deadly disease.
“I have been forced to empty my savings and even sold some items right from the time the lump was detected and receiving treatment at the Lagos University teaching Hospital (LUTH). My children education is badly affected as well. My husband is a man of strong will and has gone round looking for money so I can do the other sessions of chemotherapy, so that my condition does not deteriorate, but things are hard. We are meeting blocks,” she explained.
‘’And that is why, I am calling on philanthropists across the country to come to my aid. I don’t want to die. I want to be there and for my children and train them. Life is gradually ebbing out of me. If I do not do this chemotherapy monthly, the doctor has warned that the condition will become worse. Please help me,” she moaned.
Her husband, Mr Afolabi Olasode who works with a courier company, said the experience is agonising for his wife. “Sleeping, eating or doing anything useful is an ordeal. I always feel her pain whenever the cancer is ravaging my wife’s body. I have pulled all my resources together for her to do the two sessions, but now there is nothing left. That is why we are appealing to all and sundry to help us because we need assistance to conclude the treatment. We need less than N2.5m to do that before her condition claims her life,” he said.
