Oniyelu, a 2004 Demography and Social Statistics graduate from Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, is currently lying helplessly with her skins bearing signs of torment on the beds of Zenith Medical and Kidney Centre, Abuja, looking up to kind-hearted Nigerians to come to her aid by raising the N17.9m required for her kidney transplant.
In April 2016, the once bubbling and buoyant Osun State indigene, had her first kidney transplant in Abuja and was back to life. But the kidney failed again in July 2019 and according to her consultant nephrologist, Dr. N.K. Anya of Zenith Medical and Kidney Centre, Abuja, she needs to urgently undergo another surgery this December to keep any hope of long term survival alive.
“The treatment plan stated above requires substantial funding and the details of the financial implications, which includes the cost of both donor and recipient evaluations and eventual surgery,” the hospital said.
Entreating Nigerians to come to her aid financially, Mrs Oniyelu, who has sold almost every valuable to be alive, has been vulnerable to series of infections that make her very uncomfortable and has been going through dialysis twice in a week to be able to pass out urine.
To help Mrs Oniyelu live an improved life again, donations can be sent to Zenith Bank Plc, Acct Name – Funmilola Cecilia Oniyelu, Acct No. – 1005109260
Her spouse, Gbenga Oniyelu, can be contacted on 08033946603.
