A widow, Sade Balogun, has cried out to Nigerians for financial assistance to save the life of her daughter Yomade, a graduate of Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, from terminal renal disease.
Yomade, 29, who read sociology and archaeology, needs N10m for renal transplant in India, for the second time, according to a medical report dated August 30, 2017 and signed by Dr. A.A. Sonanya for the Head of Nephrology Unit of Lagos State University Teaching Hospital (LASUTH).
In the reference letter, SUB/LASUTH/MED/2017/303, “The above named is a known patient of our unit, who presented for the first time in April 2017. She had a renal transplant done about two and a half years ago in India prior to presentation. “She subsequently developed a failed renal allograft and is now back on maintenance hemodialysis (once a week). “She attends regular out-patient nephrology clinic and is currently being worked up for a repeat renal transplantation. Therefore, any assistance you can render will be most beneficial to the patient.”
The mother, who equally called for prayer for daughter, told Sunday Vanguard, “Yomade wants to live, she still has dreams and believes so much in what the future holds, and if God has kept her till now, then there is more to her life”.
