Mrs Abidemi Akinyele has pleaded for help from generous individuals in the country and beyond to assist in reviving the health of her daughter, Oluwajomiloju Taiwo suffering from a hole in the heart.
Mrs Abidemi Akinyele who resides in Akure, Ondo State, hailed from Ifaki, Ekiti, told The Trumpet that she discovered a strange illness in her four years old daughter on the 30th of April, 2022 and took her to Mother & Child hospital in Akure to know what was happening to her.
She said Oluwajomiloju’s health condition could not be handled there and she was referred to the State General Hospital, Akure where she was again directed to the Federal Medical Centre (FMC), Owo for treatment.
The petty trader said at (FMC), her daughter’s Chest X-ray was drawn out and the doctor discovered that a hole was in her heart which resulted from a Symptomatic Congenital Heart Disease.
“When we were discharged after treatments, I carried Jomiloju back to the hospital because she was bleeding. Then on 21 Aug 2022, Dr Samuel gave us a transfer note referring us to (OAUTHC), Ife.
“On getting to Obafemi Awolowo University Teaching Hospitals Complex (OAUTHC), the test still showed the same indication of Tetralogy of Fallot for possible open heart surgery.
“When we got to Ife, the doctors first assisted with little treatment without charging us, but they told us a heart surgery will be carried out on my daughter and this will cost us 5 million naira.”
Ever since the illness started, Oluwajomiloju Taiwo could not continue with her elementary education at Great Vision Nursery and Primary School, Akure, Ondo State because her parents have spent all their resources to restore the health of their daughter.
“Our child’s health is more important; we have stopped her academics for now as a result of lack of resources to cater for her current health challenges.”
“We need assistance to pay for the surgery. Maybe later she would return to school to seek and achieve her future aspiration to become a medical doctor,” her mother disclosed.
She disclosed that she had spent over N200,000 thousand on her daughter’s illness, adding that she could not raise huge amounts of money the doctor asked for the operation.
“Her father is a driver. We have tried but we could not raise the huge amounts of money the doctor asked us to bring for the operation.
“Nigerians should please have mercy and help me with financial support in saving the life of my little daughter Oluwajomiloju Taiwo.
