Emmanuel needs N1.5 million for surgery
Emmanuel Babalola, 17, who was diagnosed with Plexiform Neurofibromatosis, a large tumor on his right foot at the Lagos University Teaching Hospital (LUTH), requires N1.5 million for surgery.
According to medical reports signed by two consultant pathologists, Dr. M.O Odunbanjo and Dr A.O. Daramola, the tests carried out showed that the “macroscopy consists of a piece of negroid skin tissue with multiple grayish subcutaneous tissue altogether. Deep in the dermis are elongated cells with poorly defined margins and deeply basophilic ovoid nucleic, which are fairly informed in size and shape.”
Speaking to The Guardian, his father, Oluwagbemiga Babalola appealed to kind-hearted Nigerians, corporate organisations, non-governmental organisations and governments to help save the future of his son with N1.5 million to enable him go for surgery on his right foot.
Oluwagbemiga said the ailment started when Babalola was two months old, with his condition deteriorating daily.
His mother, who was in tears, said the family had spent all they had on his previous surgery and treatments, ‘’the foot is swollen and he can hardly walk. Sometimes, I carry him on my back.”
Emmanuel is, however, hopeful of walking and furthering his education to the university as he pleads to Nigerians to assist him in getting the money for his surgery.
