A staff of the National Population Commission, Fatima O. Adesola is soliciting the financial support of members of the public to fund a kidney transplant operation that will cost 15 million naira.

Adesola was diagnosed with End-Stage Renal Disease (Kidney Failure) in 2020. She has since been on hemodialysis 2-3 times weekly.

“This disease has hugely interrupted my mom’s normal daily lifestyle and has placed a great burden on our family finances,” one of her daughters said.

She said the family has lost all their investments to the cost of funding her mother’s treatments with nothing left.

“My mom has experienced several near-death episodes caused by medical complications from the disease. Her unstable urea and Creatinine levels cause her to be weak, tired, and ineffective. My mom made enormous sacrifices for my sibling and I while raising us, so watching her suffer due to this disease has been very devastating for us,” she said.

A medical report signed by Dr A.A. Busari, consultant Nephrologist at Gbagada General Hospital in Lagos State recommended that a kidney transplant should be carried out on her to stabilise her health.

Adesola needs ₦15 million to get the procedure done. This amount covers the cost of surgery, hospitalisation, medications, and post-surgery assessments for Fatima and the kidney donor.

The family mentioned that through the support of friends and associates, they have raised almost N3 million towards her treatment. However, they still require support in raising the remaining N12 million.

According to her daughter, Fatima’s health insurance plan from the Federal Government does not cover the cost of dialysis and other treatments associated with Kidney disease, saying the family has been stretched beyond their financial limits.

“Please, we need your assistance to support my mom financially for a kidney transplant. Raising this fund would make it possible for her to get a transplant and thereby eliminate all the discomfort and trauma that my mother is currently experiencing,” she said.

Interested persons can send their financial support to her Guaranty Trust bank account – Fatima O. Adesola 0659806591.

Donations can also be done to Fatima’s surgery here and via GoFundme here . The family can be contacted on 07081543116 and 08189438037.
