Please read Akuwa's story as told by her friend Adeola Osunde and contribute to Akuwa's medical fund...
|Akuwa Joy Adejo|
Akuwa has been sick for long time now, and was diagnosed with Umbilical Hernia and Liver Failure. Umbilical hernia in adults usually occurs when too much pressure is put on a weak section of the stomach muscles, due to factors including: being overweight, frequent pregnancies, multiple gestation pregnancies (having twins, triplets, etc.) fluid in the abdominal cavity, stomach surgery, or having a persistent, heavy cough. Liver failure or hepatic insufficiency is the inability of the liver to perform its normal synthetic and metabolic function as part of normal physiology. Two forms of liver failure are recognised - acute and chronic liver failure.
The total amount for the expenses is $55,000 (US Dollars). This is inclusive of their accommodation as well as air tickets and travel arrangements. Akuwa is earnestly trying to make ends meet, as some of us might have noticed her merchandise on her facebook wall. She too is in her own little way sourcing to raise funds for her operation.

The latest update on her trip to India:
Akuwa can't be cut opened twice for the two surgeries within very short breaks, the doctors advised it's better to have the two surgeries done at the same time. She has till Jan 15th to get these surgeries done. As at the last time she went to India, the doctors told her that her liver is below 5% performance. Truth is, Akuwa has less than 1 month to perform the surgeries for the avoidance of irreversible damages. Akuwa has also permitted us to share her pics as well.
Please give as much as you can. God bless you as you do so. Please donate and share as well. Thank you in advance for contributing to this cause.
