Liberia: Cancer-Stricken' Victim Needs Help - Appeals to Goodwill Liberians, Int'l Groups to Lend Him Financial Aid

It is now confirmed that his condition is worse and can only be handled out of Liberia by a plastic surgeon, one of which is not in Liberia.

A man who is being battered by "skin cancer," and seems to be at the point of giving up his faith is relying on the intervention of people of goodwill to rescue him. He is only living at the will and mercy of the God Almighty as the situation is reaching uncontrollable margins.

Mr. Isaac Williams, according to his fiancé and medical records, has been sick since the 1990s with no improvement, despite undergoing four different surgical operations, the latest being June 16, 2012.

As it is, time is no longer in his favor as the situation is worsening by the day so much so that doctors who have been looking after his conditions have recommended that he be taken out of Liberia for advanced medical attention, which includes plastic surgery.

Williams' medical records in possession of this paper from the Jackson F. Doe Regional Referral Hospital and the Firestone Medical Center show that he is suffering from "Ulcerated Dermato Fabrosarcoma Protuberns," a condition that can only handled by a trained plastic surgeon.

"The above mentioned was admitted 18th November 2012 with a history of 'knot on stomach' for four years. On completion of his physical examination, he is diagnosed with "Ulcerated Dermato Fabrosarcoma Protuberns with no metastatic lesion," writes Ian B. Pabs-Garnon, MD of the Firestone Health Services.

"Due to the enormous size of the mass, he is advised to seek the services of a plastic surgeon outside the country," he added.

His results from CT findings conducted at the Jackson F. Doe Regional Referral Hospital showed "There is a huge solid mass arising from the anterior abdominal wall, occupying the mid abdomen and pelvis which extends both inside and the outside."

On behalf of the ailing 42 years old Liberian, his fiancée, Miss Doris Gongar appealed to philanthropic institutions and personalities here in Liberia and out of the country to lend a help hand to the dying man.

Any Liberian, group of Liberians or institutions of goodwill that may be touched by his condition and want to extend a helping hand can do so through the New Republic Newspaper or his fiancée, Miss Doris Gongar on the following numbers 0886-598-641 or 0886-527-862.
