Two-year-old boy with multiple holes in heart, needs N6m for surgery
A two-year-old boy, Ramadan Shedrack Mayaleke, diagnosed with three holes in the heart, needs the sum of N6 million for urgent chest infection surgery.
A medical report signed by the management of the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital (LASUTH), shows that the boy is currently on anti-failure medication and further implores Nigerians to accord him necessary assistance.
According to the report, Ramadan was initially admitted at LASUTH ten months ago, was centrally diagnosed with oxygen saturation values in room air between 77.45 per cent.
Examination of the cardiovascular systems revealed, as stated in the report, a heart rate of 135bmp with a prude 3/6 pansystolic murmur loudest at the left lower sternal border.
The report concludes that echocardiography was done on January 6, 2021. Ramadan is said to have three holes in the heart – Secundum ASD, right partial anomalous pulmonary venous connection, and moderate PAH.
It further stated that he was presented on account of recurrent chest infections noticed from birth.
The patient’s mother, Tolani Mayaleke, said she had been facing endless difficulties since she gave birth to Ramadan.
Mayaleke noted that LASUTH told her last November that her son was due for the operation, hence her plea to the public for financial help to save her son.
“I’m pleading to everyone to help me. I don’t want to lose my son. Please help me. The surgery is meant to be held in Nigeria at Babcock University Teaching Hospital,” she added.
