Pulse is imploring kind-hearted Nigerians, corporate bodies, and NGOs to help this poor child to get the needed surgery so as to live.
The little baby, Tobiloba Ademuyiwa, has been diagnosed with a serious congenital heart disease by doctors at the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital (LUTH), and the parents have resorted to asking for help from kind-hearted Nigerians so that their poor infant can survive.
The worried father, Ademuyiwa Ayodeji, sent this passionate appeal to Pulse:
I am writing to ask for your kind help to save my son's life. On the 1st of June this year, my 2-month-old son, Master Ademuyiwa Tobiloba, was diagnosed as having serious congenital heart diseases (single ventricle, transposition of great arteries and pulmonary hypertension) in LUTH.
The diagnosing doctors told me and my wife that our son's diseases were highly rare, complex, dangerous and almost incurable in Nigeria here and that we would need to fly him to India as soon as possible. My wife and I are in the deepest despair.
On Friday, 5th August 2016, our consultant at LUTH requested that we do another Echo scan on him and after the scan, she advised that we do the surgery within the next two months because the disease has started spreading and making it difficult for him to breathe well.
The total cost of the surgery is N4 million, which seems to be the only opportunity for my son to live.
I have been able to raise about N1.5 million from my workplace and donations from people and still need much more. Your financial support will be highly appreciated.
All donations should be directed to the below account details:
All my family would be extremely grateful if you would like to give us help in whatever way.
Thank you very much!
Ayodeji Ademuyiwa (Father)
We at Pulse also plead with well-meaning Nigerians to come to the aid of this family so Tobiloba can go for the surgery as that seems to be the last hope for him.
God bless as we all donate to save the poor child.
