This 35 Year Old Man Needs N4m for Reconstructive Surgery

I saw this report in the Punch and felt I should share it. Mobolaji Adeyemi is a 35 year old man who developed ‘adenocarcinoma’ around his neck which led to the removal of his lower jaws in a surgery in May 2013 at the Lagos State Teaching Hospital, Ikeja. According to the family, the surgery cost about N1.6m  an amount that was donated by friends, classmates, and other good samaritans.

But after this surgery, Adeyemi could no longer eat well nor speak properly like he did before going for the operation. However, to solve this problem, doctors said it would be required of him to go for a reconstruction surgery at Apollo Hospital in Ahmedabad, India. His family have not been able to meet up with the financial requirements to go for the surgery which will cost $25,000 (N4m). The amount covers consultancy fees, anaesthesia, surgical fees by the chief consultant and two assisting surgeons, post operation care/treatment, various laboratory tests as well as therapy after operation. It also includes cost of obtaining visa, feeding and moderate accommodation covering 3 good months.

His wife Titilayo said, “It has been a terrible situation in my family since my husband developed this disease. We have spent all we had on him, yet he has not been able to eat or talk with his mouth. I hereby appeal to people to come to our aid. He is really suffering. I cannot even remember the last time we talked together as husband and wife again. I want to see him express his love to me again by talking. Please come to our aid.” You can go here for more details or reach his wife via 08057310451. God bless you as you do.
