A plea for assistance has been made by 60-year-old Odubiro Adesisi, a resident of Ijebu-Ode in Ogun state, Nigeria. She urgently requires a kidney transplant and is seeking the support of compassionate individuals to raise N20 million for her medical treatment.
Odubiro’s medical condition, as documented in a report from Babcock University Teaching Hospital dated September 4, 2023, is critical. She is currently undergoing treatment for chronic kidney disease, necessitating a renal transplant. Her symptoms include nausea, vomiting, facial puffiness, hiccups, anorexia, weight loss, reduced urinary output, and frothy urine.
According to Dr. Oyebisi Oyekunle, the Consultant Nephrologist at the hospital, Odubiro requires additional dialysis sessions and medical interventions. The definitive solution is a renal transplant, which involves preliminary tests and post-operative evaluations. The estimated cost for this life-saving procedure, including post-operative medications, is approximately N20 million.
Dr. Oyekunle explained, “The patient is a known hypertensive individual who was referred to our facility due to various symptoms, including vomiting, general weakness, abdominal pain, and difficulty breathing. She has also experienced pedal swelling and anemia, requiring blood transfusions.”
Odubiro’s family has penned a heartfelt letter seeking assistance on her behalf. They disclosed that her health has deteriorated significantly in recent months, and medical consultations and tests have confirmed the urgency of her kidney condition.
The family’s letter reads, “Unfortunately, the financial burden of the recommended treatment, which includes a potential kidney transplant, pre-operative assessments, post-operative care, medications, and continuous medical follow-ups, has become overwhelming for us.”
In a plea to fellow Nigerians, Odubiro Omolara, a representative of the family, implores kind-hearted individuals to come forward and offer their support during this critical time. Any contribution, regardless of the amount, will make a significant difference in ensuring that Odubiro receives the essential medical care she desperately needs.
