Cancer patient Funmi Lawal loses one arm to cancer, needs your help

Funmi Lawal is the UNILAG law graduate who was diagnosed with malignant sarcoma, a kind of cancer at the shoulder region. We raised money for her on LIB last August...she was the one Don Jazzy donated N2million to. You can read more about her HERE.

Funmi was able, through your kindness, to raise the money she needed for her treatment and went for her surgery in the UK last year. She contacted me today with the news that her surgery was successful but her left arm had to be amputated to save her life. See Funmi's email below. Please read...
I want to thank the people of Nigeria for their donations, I am really grateful. I underwent the surgery at the Royal Orthopaedic Hospital Birmingham. It was done three different times; the 11th, 12th and 18th. 
The surgery was very successful, glory be to God that I am alive today and there is no trace of cancer in my body again. But my left hand was amputated because it was the best thing to do in order to save my life and prevent the cancer from spreading.
Read the rest after the cut...but please be warned, there's a photo there that some of you might find disturbing. Continue...


The treatment was extremely expensive and has been a great challenge for me and my family. After paying the sum of £25000 to the hospital account before we left the country, I was given an additional fees of £6300 when I was discharged. This we had to beg the doctor to allow us pay in pieces because it wasn't planned for. (My family has been able to pay £2100 out of the money now)
Another challenge am having is getting an artificial limb to replace the lost one. An estimate has been given to me via mail by the Ability Matters Clinical in Roehampton London, about £4500 excluding consultation fees...
Please I need Nigerians to help me once again in order to get an artificial hand so that I can achieve my goals of being a practicing lawyer and also help me pay the additional fees to the hospital.
Attached are pictures of me a day before the surgery, on the surgery day and after the surgery.

What do u mean by greedy? From the write up it seems she cudnt even finish paying the bills. If u have nothing to offer, then thank God for her life. She is not asking for too much. So u that has two functional hands is not being greedy or what? U just plain insensitive.

Anonymous said...

Thought of greed like u said but I remembered matthew 7:7. All u need to do is ASK! If she gets it, itz all good k! Giving a helping hand is never too much for the hand that giveth shall receive!

@anon
na wa for you people o,someone is presently in the united kingdom the hospital bills have to be sent to the united kingdom and you are posting a guarantee trust account number?
so we will send naira to nigerian account then they will intern change the naira back to the original currency we sent it in and back here does that make any sense?

linda pls confirm if its a genuine account number for the girl or its yahoo boys in action o dont let anyone give your blog a bad name

Anonymous said...

Fineola, I totally agree with you. I seem to remember she was in the US with Linda a few months back. Who paid for that trip? Why didn't u save that minimum $1000, to add to your bill? You didn't know there could be unforeseen costs so u spent excess on ticket to US, huh? Now were supposed to dig into our pockets this new year, after we spent all our money doing Xmas? Better cut your one-handed coat to your size, get a job and go on a payment plan....mama Ifu

I don't think everyone dt hs an idea in his/her head shld open the "blah-ber" mouth of their's to talk. If u ain't giving, don't. U shouldn't come here and say shit. Also, I don't want to believe "Debbie" d breast cancer patient is d one dt said so much shit. (Excuse my pidgin). Just cos u cnt get nu breast doesn't mean u shld beef. Being mean wouldn't help ur plight. So just ZIP it. Thank u

I understand everyone's opinion abt the Oliver twist issue. But let's b real. What if she just told us it ws for additional hospital bills. Who would know. But some (just as what is happening now) would have questioned it. Thr wld b doubt if she says d truth or if she lies. I blive we shld appreciate her honesty. Pls if u can help, do so. If u can't, don't discourage others. God would bless us all. Funmi, UNILAG Set '11 wish u speedy recovery n Godspeed. AMEN
