45-year-old Taibat Ismail, a resident of Kubwa District, Abuja, is battling with liver tumour and requires N15million for an urgent liver transplant in India.
Ismail, who is on dialysis and twice a week haemodialysis care at the National Hospital, Abuja, is in need of the money to offset the bills for the overseas trip and treatment of the ailment.
An indigene of Okehii Local Government Council of Kogi State, Ismail was healthy until October last year when she took ill and had medical diagnosis where the disease was discovered.
According to her, what started as a "feverish condition" in October 2011 has taken its toll on the once robust and beauty queen of her family. Now fragile, she could only mutter: "Please help me" when LEADERSHIP WEEKEND visited her.
The ailment has reduced her to a heap of wrinkled face and frequent bouts of pain and sorrow.She could not manage a straight chat due to fatigue and exhaustion for the period LEADERSHIP WEEKEND stayed with her.
She said: "For over a year now, I've been in a bad state of health. The problem is liver problem, liver tumour. I don't know how it affects the body. God has been helping me to survive with prayers from concerned brothers, sisters and friends."
In tears, Ismaila appealed to all well-meaning Nigerians and non-Nigerians to help keep her alive by raising the money she needs for the liver transplant in India.
"All that I require to live a healthy life is a quick liver transplant which the doctors said will be in India". Kind hearted Nigerians can reach her on 08067954901,07067353274, 08023371605or Taibat Ismail account number 0119866473, GTB.
