Let's help save Funmi Lawal

Funmi Lawal is a 2011 UNILAG law graduate/Queens College 2005. She was recently diagnosed with malignant sacorma, a kind of cancer at the shoulder region. The cancer has become so extensive that it might affect other parts of the body if surgery is not done as soon as possible. It could cost her not just her hand but her life.

Funmi needs N4million for surgeery ASAP. Read Funmi's words and how you can help save this bright, young woman after the cut...




Funmi explains:
“I’ve had this shoulder issues since like 7yrs now though, have done a surgery sometimes back and I’ve gone to other places too, but no head way (couldn’t lift the hand) but when law school came, I dint have time for the hand but studies.. Then it started getting bigger at d shoulder region and bigger by d day. I went 2 my hospital and they asked me 2 do some test like MRI, fine needle test and all. On d test, they said there is a MALIGNANT SARCOMA. A doctor friend then referred me to an expert doctor in this field… He said its a kind of bone cancer and its extensive, he said I must start RADIO therapy fast to shrink d tumor and stop any spread. He also said that there is a test called “bone scan” dt will show my whole body to know where it has spread to and this test can’t be done in Nigeria because d machine is not in Nigeria yet, that I must find a way as soon as possible to go do d surgery outside the country because its life threatening… He said if I lose my hand its better than losing my life. Meanwhile my brother contacted some doctors online and hospitals that specialize in this kind of tumor.. He was the one that gave the estimated price via email”

what is her email address?
tell her to contact Earthwide Surgical Foundation (they are is a non-profit organization, dedicated to delivering surgical care to the poor of the world by means of manpower, equipment and education)

they are sending doctors to Nigeria early September, and they seem to have worked with a number of cancer patients in Nigeria.

Do our politicians read your Blog? If yes, it is time we stop this "Begging for Money" for treatment and they, the politicians shd stop stealing and make healthcare delivery affordable and accessible, sickness has no boarder and no age limit and it is no respecter of level in society. Min, of Health and Govg. we need action now, am already getting tired of everyday begging for help to help the sick, we have the money and health care service is a money making ventures and a gold mine more profitable that our oil

Anonymous said...

I'm sorry, but something smells fishy about this story. Can we get a picture showing her face with the shoulder in the same picture and not one picture showing her face, and then another showing the supposed shoulder?.
And yes, i question the authenticity of the story because for one, how does a Law School Grad write English like that? Also, What in the world is a Radio Scan? We just buried a very close relative on Saturday who died of colon cancer, and had been through 6 rounds of Chemo treatment here in the States, at no point in time during this ordeal did i ever hear "Radio Scan".
I have no doubt the shoulder in the picture is afflicted and belongs to someone, i just hope its not a picture someone got off Google images or something and is trying to make money from this. We all know this is not impossible in Nigeria, and even here in the U.S; people have been known to fake cancer just to get people to give them money. Ms Linda, i hope you'll post this. Thanks - Baby Dee

I have read Funmi's message and apart from the fact that she happens to be a friend of my niece, there are too many gaps in the mail. First you dont go on the internet to look for a consultant by just looking at their Cv's to find out the best, secondly, you cant just be asking for money without knowing the exact cost of the opereation, the mail from the consultant says surgeries could cost up to £10,000 depending on the etc etc. No embassy will give you a medical without a reference letter from your resident doctor. I reside in the Uk and I have an idea of the hospital around the Wimpole/Harley street axis, consultation is £250 for 30 minutes but they wont commit to anything until they have sent you for a test and seen the results. My advice is for Funmi to go to Igbobi or any good hospital in Nigeria, have an initial test done and get a recommendation from the doctor to go abroad for treatment,the doctors note can then be sent to the consultant in London and arrangements can be made to get your a visa and sort out all other issues. I would pay Funmi's initial consultancy fee but she needs to do things right and go through the proper channels.It will also be nice to see a picture of Funmi, we want to help but sometimes it is best to put emotions aside and be realistic

Anonymous said...

(Am laughing in japanese)go to healing school and then what? D cancer spreads to other parts of her body and she eventually leaves your healing school and it will be too late for her? Biko which healing school did Jesus send anybody to sef? Why not give her whatever you have instead of publishing this ill-advice. Na wa oh! And Naija people still plenty with this kind of mentality sha!!!

Silver or Gold none do I have, but what I have I will give unto u, may the Lord create an outstanding breakthough for you in Jesus.

Linda, your readers like giving, but you should also make it a duty to verify them. It would be very bad if we have to give and it happened that we are all scammed.
Now other blogs might have it too but you are LINDA, so verify it and tell us.
*Btw, don't be too obnoxious about hiring staff for this blog. It is obviously getting bigger than you.

Cancer or not, basic prowess in the English language is expected of anyone who has finished secondary school and graduated from University as a lawyer.

This letter looks like one written by Yahoo boys.

Appeals come in every day, both personal and corporate, and if one is asking for something they least they can do is put their situation across coherently.

Well to start with, I believe this story.I'm a medical student @ LUTH andfunmi's dad himself came to my school to ask for assistance.let's help in any way we can rather than arguing about her grammar or the details.Phone numbers and BB pins are there if you need to clarify some details.God bless us all and wishing her a speedy recovery.

I agree wif d person 4rm US.ppl r willing 2 help, its jst dat nobody wants 2 b scammed nymor. Her siblings shld help her go thru d right channel n get stamped report 4rm a reputable hospital. so dat wld tkia of d authenticity of d whole story.ppl can b so petty, wat has her english got to do wif a life threatning issue? I fink dats so inconsequential. As 4 me, am goin 2 pay wat I av in her account on wednesday regardless of aw true d story is or not. Thrs jst so much pain in dis world, God help us all.

We need to see doctor`s diagnosis too. I hope this is not a scam. Some things are not adding up here.

Hello people what's with the freaking animosity. So the young man let his feelings be known and repped his alma mata on the sly. Why must we jump to insults at the slightest provocation? I'm a proud KCOB, HU and Havard grad so I had to stick up for my fellow KCOB. Say what U may, I have attempted to help this young lady while most of you have given her your prayers as "help" even when U have disposable income. Freaking selfish black people. Yup my thoughts are all over the place but it's early in the morning and I'm typing on my iPhone. So it's whatever. Cheers

I am shocked at the way some of us think. Yes I understand we have to be careful in these days of scammers and all. But I want to believe for you to be reading Linda's blogs, you believe she has a good reputation. If that is true, y not take her word for it? Would she post a story she herself did not confirm? What has Funmi's english writing skills got to do with anything? Linda, I hope you post this comment. Bottom line is help Funmi if you want otherwise, keep your comments to urself.

I know fummi too, we were in the same class at the nigerian law school lagos campus. She was the assistant group leader of my group and she was hard working and very dedicated to the group. She had always had problems with that shoulder, little did we know it was cancer developing there until after our bar finals examinations when she went for test in the hospital and it was discovered to be cancer!. I understand the fears of those who are afraid of being duped and I want to confirm and assure them that this is real. It is not a scam, I have seen her and I have seen the shoulder, it is exactly as it is in that picture. She would have provided more information as was suggested in the above comments had she known they were required and nobody told her about it until now. she is in great pains now and needs as much help as she can get...please help her if you can.
