Funke Badru, a 21 year-old student of Moshood Abiola Polytechnic (MAPOLY), Abeokuta Ogun State who has brain tumor has finally been given a space at the theatre of the University College Hospital (UCH), Ibadan to undergo an operation to remove the growth on Wednesday.
News Bytes had called for a N2 million financial help for young and hopeful Funke in January this year, to which many well-meaning Nigerians responded. The Board of Management of MAPOLY gave a sum of N250, 000; the same amount was also donated by Mrs Toyin Saraki. Many within the News Bytes fold and beyond also gave their widows mite and a sum of N1.1 million was realised.
After this, Funke was placed on medication for a pre-surgery procedure, which lasted till March and although she was to have had the surgery shortly after, the limitations in theatre space delayed this. Thankfully, Funke Badru has finally been slated to undergo the operation tomorrow Wednesday 8th May, 2013.
News Bytes have been in constant touch with her. We are hopeful that with the YOUR support, Funke will make it through, healthy and back to school again.
An initial deposit of N1 million has been made on Monday, but an estimate of N800, 000 is still required for post-surgery expenses.
We therefore, on behalf of Funke Badru solicit for:
– Your prayers for a successful procedure tomorrow and more importantly,
– Your financial support to raise the needed N800, 000
Although already on admission at the UCH, she can receive calls today, and won’t be able to tomorrow for obvious reasons, so please feel free to call her. Alternatively, send her texts to encourage her (Funke Badru’s Mobile – 08069388103).
Kindly forward your donations to Funke Badru’s Account (ACCOUNT DETAILS: ECO BANK, BADRU FUNKE: 2372113325)
Let’s make Funke Badru OUR success story!
