48-year-old Patrick Ofuonyeadi is lying on a hospital bed battling cancer and needs a sum of N20 million to defeat the deadly illness.

The family of the ailing Nigerian said they have exhausted their financial strength to keep their brother alive but all financial efforts proved abortive as more money for Bone Marrow Transplant and Spine Surgery. 

Addressing journalist, Cousin to Ofuonyeadi, Ikechukwu Nwaolisa said, “We call on our beloved country Nigeria to come together to support Patrick Somayina Ofuonyeadi, a brave individual who is facing the challenges of cancer with unwavering strength and determination.

“Patrick Somayina Ofuonyeadi, 48 years old, took ill and was diagnosed with multiple myeloma (Cancer Of The white blood cells and bone marrow).

“Ever since then, he has been battling with it. He has done numerous x-rays, three MRIs, one biopsy, and many other medical tests and examinations at Synlab limited, Nigerian Army Reference Hospital 44 Kaduna, and at the Barau Dikko Teaching Hospital Kaduna State respectively, where he has been receiving treatment since January 2020.

“Between 2020 and now, Patrick has had 13 chemotherapy cycles. The cost of medical treatments, medications, and other related expenses has put a strain on both Patrick’s and his family’s finances as they have been drained financially in the pursuit of this fight.

“However, the financial burden of medical expenses has added an extra layer of stress to this already difficult journey. We are pleading to well-meaning Nigerians to kindly extend a helping hand and make a meaningful impact on the life of Patrick.

“We plead to Nigerians to join in this fight to help save Patrick Somayina Ofuonyeadi. Your support in prayers and contributions during this challenging time no matter how big or small will go a long way in alleviating their financial burden and saving Patrick.

“Patrick’s phone number is 08135884247. His account details are; Acct Name: Patrick Somayina Ofuonyeadi. Bank: Zenith Bank Plc. Account Number: 2081487527,” said Ikechukwu.
