Life looks bleak for 37-year-old Gbolahan Rufai, an indigene of Ikere in Ekiti State, if he cannot raise the sum of N9 million to undergo an urgent kidney transplant. The young man who is now confined to the bed, was diagnosed of Renal failure in January 2016, following series of medical tests at the Alimosho General Hospital, Igando, Lagos State.

Tracing the genesis of his battle with the disease, Rufai said:

"I have been undergoing dialysis twice weekly since January at about N80,000 a week, aside from medication - a cost far beyond my means, thanks to support of my family and friends.

Meanwhile, I have been advised by my medical consultant at the hospital that kidney transplant remains the final solution.

I have been referred to a reliable hospital in India. The cost of traveling, surgery, medication and upkeep for the kidney transplant is N9 million.

The worrisome part is that I lost two older siblings to the same ailment in quick succession before we realized the threat."

How it started

"It started in January. I was called that my son was being rushed to the hospital. The following day, he was discharged while I decided to check my blood pressure at the hospital.

The doctor then told me my blood pressure is high and he gave me recommend some medications. I bought the medications and started using them but I noticed that I begin to have some pains in my stomach after I began to use the medications.

I complained to doctor that I was feeling discomfort inside of me. He then checked my BP again and later referred me to Ifako General Hospital where series of other tests were conducted. It was then they discovered the kidney problem issue."

What I want

"I humbly solicit every assistance from you towards raising the needed sum within the shortest possible time, to survive this harrowing condition.

I will be eternally grateful for every assistance from you."

We are appealing to kind hearted Nigerians, corporate bodies and the government at various levels to come to the aid of this young man.
