“When she fell ill four years ago we took her to the Federal Medical Centre, Owo, but they could not detect the nature of her illness until when we got to the University Teaching Hospital,UCH,Ibadan where we were referred to. The doctor at the UCH advised us to look for money to operate her before it is too late. I need help from good-spirited Nigerians to save this girl’s life as she is getting worse everyday. She cannot walk like her twin sister while her legs are swollen and she breaths heavily “.
