Liberia: Man With Skin Cancer Family Renews Appeals

The family of a man suffering from skin cancer has again renewed its appeal for assistance to help their son seek further medical treatment abroad. According to a family member, Doris Gongar, the man, Isaac Williams, has been suffering from the sickness for several years. She said he underwent surgery three times without any positive result and as a result of this, the doctors advised the family to take Williams abroad because there is no treatment for the sickness in the country.

Madam Gongar said the family is renewing its appeal because since the story was published few days ago, the family has not received any commitment for their ailing relative, who once lived in Grand Bassa County.

The doctor's report revealed that "there is huge solid mass arising from the anterior abdominal wall, occupying the main abdomen and pelvis which extends both inside and to the outside. Liver is normal in size and parenchymal density."

The report further said, "The GB has normal wall thickness. The intrahepatic ducts and the CBD have normal caliber, the pancreas has normal size and density. There is no obvious mass lesion, both kidneys are normal in size, shape and position. They have smooth contour and there is no peritoneal free fluid."

The family said because of the precarious condition of Mr. Williams, they are appealing for any assistance to save his life and anyone willing to help the family should do so through THE INQUIRER or contact cell numbers: 0886516533/0886578647/0886527862.
