Abiodun Olatunde is a 21 year old young lady, a known HBSS (sickle cell) patient with a problem of Avascular Necrosis.
Olatunde, the once energetic and charismatic young lady, woke up on the 7th of January with a pain on her knee. Due to her condition, we didn’t want to take chances, she was taken to LUTH, what was just like a routine checkup, turned to the beginning of our nightmare. Olatunde, was placed on admission, her condition worsened, this lead to septic water on her knee chest. Olatunde couldn’t sleep or eat, she was always in pain, her loved ones cried all day.
By May, her hips were operated on, she spent 4 months at the hospital where she was in constant pains, even after the surgery.
We carried out series of test, our lovely daughter was diagnosed with osteoarthritis on both hips, which later degenerated to AVS.
As a family, we have spent all we have just to make sure Olatunde walks again. All options has been exhausted, we are all in pains. She has been on a wheelchair, moved to frames and now on crutches.
In total she has undergone 3 surgeries but still in this condition. After proper evaluation by Consultants from the Teaching Hospital, Olatunde needs hip replacement surgery , which will be carried out in Lagos , we have sought help from different channels, she has been depressed due to the fact that people have promised and failed her, we have done all we can as a family, we are currently helpless. This has also slowed down her education.
Finally! the wonderful doctors have assured us that with this surgery(hip replacement), she would be able to walk again and live a normal life, continue her education which has been put on hold for a while now.
The total amount needed for the hip replacement surgery is 3 Million Naira.
Our little girl deserves a normal life, she deserves to walk again, she deserves to be happy.
Good PEOPLE, PLEASE HELP OLATUNDE WALK AGAIN
