Temitayo Abayomi Lawal, 24-year-old, who is experiencing neurofibroma, an uncommon malignant growth infirmity, is in urgent need of over N4million help to complete a restorative medical procedure.
The Mechanical Engineering undergrad of Yaba College of Technology (Yabatech) Lagos, who was compelled to drop out of school because of his evil wellbeing, has done more than 25 medical procedures as of now since the disease started more than 14 years prior.
The indigene of Okene, Kogi State visited the corporate home office of The Nation papers last Thursday, in organization of his mom, Mrs. Aderonke Lawal, a widow of 22 years, who has beared the torment and anguish of taking care of her wiped out child without anyone else with little assistance from relatives and companions.
Temitayo, who did not sell out the feelings of somebody undermined by a terminal sickness, reviewed that his experience started in December 2004.
He was returning home from chapel on the 31st of December, 2004 when he was associated with a bike mishap, harming his thumb all the while. Normally, he connected medical aid when he returned home and slowly overlooked it.
Notwithstanding, by mid-2005, a development began showing up on the lower some portion of his leg, causing him serious agony and a visit to a private emergency clinic in Agege, where he had the primary medical procedure in 2006.
The delight of that ‘effective’ medical procedure was anyway fleeting, as the threatening development raised its head again in 2007 – scarcely 10 months after.
This time, it turned out to his left side knee, making him experience another medical procedure at Gbagada General Hospital, Lagos, in 2010. Be that as it may, a lot to the shame of child and mother, another protuberance began developing again in 2011 and he was encouraged to go for medical procedure once more, which he did among August and September 2012.
Once more, the development raised its head in 2013, this time at his crotch, driving him to go under the specialists’ blades 18 tiring occasions inside a spate of a quarter of a year in Benin Republic.
The issue that crosses over into intolerability that crushed the camel’s spirit was in September 2015. Having had progressive medical procedures, which rendered his skin feeble, some portion of the body was joined to empower him experience medicinal treatment.
Lamentably, the joined piece of his body began tearing in 2015, making him drain each day. Once more, the development on his crotch reemerged, with its chaperon agony and anguish.
“I was reserved for a medical procedure at LUTH in 2016 yet as around then, there was lack of store. In 2017, the agony ended up horrendous that I needed to go to LUTH once more.
“The specialists contemplated my wellbeing, as they said forsaking treatment that long was unsafe. In the wake of completing a few tests on me, I was reserved for medical procedure since last October yet the bill is only excessively expensive for my mom.
“Subsequently, I have been set on chemotherapy sedates by Dr. O. Bailey of Plastic and Surgery, LUTH since December a year ago. The medications cost N30,000 each and I take it two times every month. So I go through over N60,000 consistently,” he mourned.
Despite the interruption to his life, the youthful fellow, who has needed to play hooky a few times, still figured out how to sit for his O’ level and JAMB tests, which he go in flying hues. He picked up admission to contemplate Mechanical Engineering, yet couldn’t wrap up.
“In any case,” he says “regardless I have a fantasy to examine Psychology.”
Temitayo, who asserted that his family has so far consumed over N6million on his treatment, regretted that it has been such a channel on the lean assets of his bereft mother, who until a couple of years back was an educator in the Ministry of Education before she was conserved alongside others in 2016.
“My sister and some family and companions have been extremely steady, yet a year ago the Living Faith Church a.k.a Winners Chapel where we love, gave us N500,000,” he uncovered.
Driving back tears, the troubled mother, stated, “There was a period that he was nursing self-destructive considerations and each time I went out, I needed to continue calling him. What’s more, on the off chance that he didn’t pick his calls, I would approach neighbors to help determine the status of him.”
As indicated by a specialist’s report dated I7th October, 2018, issued for the Chief Medical Director at the Lagos University Teaching Hospital (LUTH) by K.O. Otuneme, Head, Corporate Services Division, a moderate gauge of the medical procedure which does not cover radiotheraphy and chemotheraphy, is over N3million and may keep going for more than 48 weeks in the principal occurrence.
Mrs. Lawal, 52, who hails from Lagos, said her two children are all she has and failure to raise the entirety required to balance the emergency clinic bills may spell further fate for the as of now damaged Temitayo.
She is thusly speaking to open lively Nigerians to go to the guide of the family.
