NKECHI, BREAST CANCER VICTIM, NEEDS YOUR HELP!
Please do not let her die! Give her a fighting chance, donate to her appeal funds! Her diagnosis is grim but she is a fighter, gallantly standing eye-ball to eye-ball to cancer of the breast! Your help is all that she has now as her treatment so far has depleted her family's life savings; and there is no insurance coverage for cancer in Nigeria, hence she brings her case to your world for help! Her name is Nkechi Nwagbo. She is a 31 year old married mother of one two year old son. Nkechi does not want to leave her son without a mother and she dotes on her son so much. But all the love of mother for a child will come to naught if this ravaging breast cancer is allowed to have its way without a fight? Nkechi counts on your loving help, support and prayer to see her through the present ordeal . She wants to live, so please help her realise her dream to see her son grow up; contribute today to her appeal funds. If international, through "Icheoku Donates" below left and if locally in Nigeria, at Save Nkechi Account Fund; Nkechi Nwagbo, Account Number 4111406119, Zenith Bank, Lagos-Nigeria.
So far Nkechi's breast cancer is being treated at Lagos State Teaching Hospital (LUTH) since her diagnosis; but the prognosis is not good enough hence the need to explore treatment overseas? But the funds are not there, hence this appeal! The good news so far is that the cancer has not spread to her left breast or metastasized to any other part of her body. Pictured here left, is the ebullient Nkechi Nwagbo before her life was interrupted by cancer. Worldwide, breast cancer is the fifth most common cause of cancer death (after lung cancer, stomach cancer, liver cancer, and colon cancer) and it is taking a toll on women in Nigeria due to the epileptic medical care therein? Breast cancer is the number one killer disease of women in Nigeria. Icheoku asks, Nigerian women would you let Nkechi also die and add to the statistics? In 2005, breast cancer caused 502,000 deaths (7% of cancer deaths; almost 1% of all deaths) worldwide. In the United States, breast cancer is the third most common cause of cancer death (after lung cancer and colon cancer). American Cancer Society, Nkechi asked that we particularly mention her case to you and hereby appeals for your assistance, regarding her plight. She walks too!
