MY STORY – IGHIWOTO OKEGHENE JOHN (LET’S KEEP HIM ALIVE) #SaveOke



20120318-121129.jpg #Save Oke (His Story) I watched in January as Nigerian youths took to the streets to demand better governance. I wanted to be out there, chanting, demanding a better life too. I can’t. My name is Ighiwoto Okeoghene John. I attended Federal Government College, Warri. Gained admission into Obafemi Awolowo University. Like many young people but unlike most, I could not finish. I was diagnosed with Diabetes 1 and 2. My health started failing. My legs failed me. I had this wound that ate my toes, that refused to heal. Just like many of you, in January 2012, I was angry with the country that didn’t have the best health care services, a country where I had to pay so much for my injections of insulin which I took daily. I was angry I could hardly keep to the diet my doctor gave me because it was expensive. I was angry yet I could not go out to march. I could not even walk. For six years now, my legs have failed me, they cannot move me; I cannot move them. My health is failing me but I keep up all hope that I will be fine. There are some things you do not choose in life; the family you are born into; the country you are born into; your genes; the sicknesses passed through those genes. I cannot change these. You cannot change this but, there is something you can change. Something you can save; my legs; my life. I need 5million naira for an operation in India. I need you to get me out of this couch. Truth is the couch is getting tired of me too. The wood from the edge that I use as pillow now pains me in the head, from wear and tear. Truth is my body is getting tired, getting weak. I need to get my life back. I need your help. Account Name: Ighiwoto Okeoghene John Account Number: 0012913007 Bank Name: GTBank Call: 08063255842 for any questions. Please save a brother’s life.
