A passionate appeal has gone to the well meaning Nigerians to come to the rescue of an helpless Nigerian medical student with renal challenges.Adebisi Adejola was not born with a silver spoon neither was he privileged to be enrolled in any first class elementary school, but he was disciplined, focused, diligent, hardworking and committed to his studies.
He was determined to make it, and he pursued his dream with dedicated commitment.
He fought starvation to complete primary education, and waged war against poverty to triumph over the mesh of secondary education.
Undeterred by the dearth of a fund, he purchased Jamb form to pursue his ambition to become a Medical Doctor and luck ran in his favour.
He passed and was subsequently offered admission at the prestigious Lagos State University, Ojoo, Lagos.
Compatriots, the above inspirational epistle is that of Adebisi Adejola, a 500 level medical student of the Lagos State University College of Medicine, Lagos, Nigeria.
The young Adebsisi was until February 2015 a happy, joyous, jolly, cheerful and optimistic man full of hopes when he was diagnosed with Chronic Kidney Disease, secondary to Chronic Glomerulonephritis at the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital (LASUTH), Lagos Nigeria.
Adebisi, an outstanding scholar and second best student of his set, is currently being managed by the Nephrology Unit of LASUTH as a case of End-Stage Renal Disease, which requires an Urgent Kidney Transplant.
The cost of the transplant is estimated at eight million naira (N8, 000, 000), which includes donor work up and a year supply of drugs.
Blackface News confirmed that Adebisi is the oldest of three siblings.
Sadly and unfortunately, his mother coincidentally died of similar condition in 2014, and his father who is a commercial driver just lost his menial job.
Adebisi Adejola is the hope of his family to break the cycle of poverty, and we are therefore using this medium to solicit for financial support for him from kind-hearted Nigerians within and outside the shores.
Adebisi’s future depends solely on this assistance as it will go a long way in helping him realize his dream of becoming a medical doctor next year.
Our prayer at Blackface News is that may God bless you as you help Adebisi get back on his feet.
Below are his bank details;
Adejola Adebisi A.
Prospective helpers may contact the Consultant in charge of his treatment at Lagos State University Teaching Hospital for any further enquiries.
