Woman needs 10 million naira for breast cancer treatment – The Sun Nigeria
By Jobs Osazuwa
Mrs. Nwakaego Ashinze is in dire need of 10 million naira to fight breast cancer which has shaken her, making life almost meaningless for the poor woman.
The 42-year-old was recently diagnosed with breast cancer at Eko Hospital in Lagos.
A statement from the hospital says she is also at the crucial stage as cancer cells are rapidly spreading to other parts of her body.
As collected, unless something is urgently done to save her, the worst could happen.
In a letter dated May 22 and signed by consultant oncologist Prof Popoola, the doctors said: “Ashinze is being treated at our facility for left breast cancer. She was seen by the oncologist on May 12. Chest CT scan report showed generalized lung and axial cancer.
“She was then placed on targeted therapy which will last for a year (three weeks apart) after completing eight courses of chemotherapy here.
“Each course of this targeted therapy costs N800,000 and will be taken 12 times. The patient can no longer afford the cost of the therapy.
“Please give him the necessary support.”
The total cost of his treatment is set at N10 million.
Ms. Ashinze is from Ubulu-Uku in the Aniocha South Local Council area of Delta State.
Meanwhile, through an online fundraising campaign launched by Mr Sunday Odiaka, a cousin of Ms Ashinze and a media professional based in Awka, Anambra State, the sum of N400,000 has been collected and sent for processing.
However, she appeals to kind-hearted Nigerians to help her so that she can live a vivacious life again.
She can be contacted through her husband, 07032612663, or Sunday Odiaka, 0703 430 3174. Any financial assistance can be provided to her through Keystone Bank, 6012271010, Ashinze Nwakaego.
