HELP PATRICK OGWU TO LIVE
After 10 years of battling with spinal cord injury, Patrick Ogwu from Ubulu Uku needs N7 million for a comprehensive spinal cord surgery.
Patrick from Idumubo quarters, has earlier undergone several treatments but recently, after a proper diagnosis, the family doctor advised that he requires a life-saving surgery.
The challenge is that, he is yet to get the needed financial help to proceed the recommended treatment at the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital, LASUTH.
Sixty (60) years old Patrick’s health is fast deteriorating as he is yet to get the required amount to follow up his treatment. His condition is further worsened by the recent death of his mother who was the only one at his hometown in Ubulu Uku, Aniocha South LGA of Delta State, to cater for him. He neither has a wife nor children.
The family, including Patrick’s brothers and sisters have toiled and soiled to get him treated, all to no avail. The only saviour now is the recommended surgery,since they cannot abandon him to die. All his life-savings while in the then Nigerian External Telecommunications (NET) had gone into the struggle to save his dear life.
Patrick is therefore, appealing to kind-hearted Nigerians and non Nigerians to help him save his life.
Narrating his brothers ordeal, Patrick’s younger brother, Ezekiel Ogwu said the condition started many years ago.
“Since then, we have taken him to several hospitals to know exactly what the problem is before. Now, we have been advised on what to do, but money is just the major challenge”.
“Today, his case has worsened. I am appealing to well-meaning Nigerians and corporate organisations to come to our rescue. From the medical advice, Patrick has high percentage chances of survival and to live happily once again”, Ezekiel appealed.
