The family of Mr Abidemi Kabiru Olajide, a 49-years -old father of four, who has been battling a deteriorating cancer of the thyroid and lung, have called to the members of the public for urgent financial assistance.
A very sad Olajide, who is a tricycle driver, while narrating the extent of his challenge said he has been unable to walk unaided, unable to take care of himself and his family. He thus pleaded for help saying he needs all the financial aid that he can get to survive his deteriorating health condition.
In an SOS message sent by his family to public, it was stated that Olajide is being managed for cancer of the thyroid which has spread to the lungs, adding that he needs urgent surgeries, as the situation is very critical, and beyond the capability of the family, residing in a one-room apartment at 9 Joseph Olawole street, Oke Aro, off Matogun Road, Ogun State .
According to his wife, Mrs Olajide, in a telephone interview with our correspondent, “LASUTH said we should raise about 500 thousand naira, first for the thyroid surgery which is the first stage before they will handle the cancer in the lungs, which we don’t know how much it will cost, coupled with other daily expenses”.
Making a passionate appeal in an emotion-laden voice, Mrs Olajide said, “It is with utmost humility and respect that I, on behalf of my husband and children, four boys plead for your kind intervention and assistance in raising money to facilitate the surgeries, adding that cheques and monies are payable to her account with the following details: 0158648832, GTB, Olajide Victoria.
She said the husband Mr Olajide and herself can be reached through his mobile telephone numbers: 08123657914 and 09031481592, adding that they are willing to accept visitors to confirm the genuineness of the case.
