I saw this on Linda Ikeji's blog and lifted it verbatim:
Funmi Lawal is a 2011 UNILAG law graduate/Queens College 2005. She was recently diagnosed with malignant sacorma, a kind of cancer at the shoulder region. The cancer has become so extensive that it might affect other parts of the body if surgery is not done as soon as possible. It could cost her not just her hand but her life.
Funmi needs N4million for surgeery ASAP. Read Funmi's words and how you can help save this bright, young woman:
“I’ve had this shoulder issues since like 7yrs now though, have done a surgery sometimes back and I’ve gone to other places too, but no head way (couldn’t lift the hand) but when law school came, I dint have time for the hand but studies.. Then it started getting bigger at d shoulder region and bigger by d day. I went 2 my hospital and they asked me 2 do some test like MRI, fine needle test and all. On d test, they said there is a MALIGNANT SARCOMA. A doctor friend then referred me to an expert doctor in this field… He said its a kind of bone cancer and its extensive, he said I must start RADIO therapy fast to shrink d tumor and stop any spread. He also said that there is a test called “bone scan” dt will show my whole body to know where it has spread to and this test can’t be done in Nigeria because d machine is not in Nigeria yet, that I must find a way as soon as possible to go do d surgery outside the country because its life threatening… He said if I lose my hand its better than losing my life. Meanwhile my brother contacted some doctors online and hospitals that specialize in this kind of tumor.. He was the one that gave the estimated price via email”
