A Nigerian lady has written an open letter to Senator Ike Ekweremadu’s ailing daughter, Sonia offering to donate one of her kidneys to save her life.
This comes after Sonia Ekweremadu, 25, appealed to the public to donate a kidney in order to save her life. She explained that she dropped out of her postgraduate studies at the University of Newcastle in 2019, after she was diagnosed with focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS) nephrotic syndrome, a rare kidney disease.
She added that her family has battled to save her life and this led to her parents facing charges directly connected to her illness.
She described her battle with kidney disease as “challenging”, adding that the charges faced by her parents in court had complicated the current situation.
The Media and Communications graduate said she presently receives 5 hours of dialysis 3 to 4 times a week and this is at the expense of her family.
In a Facebook post, Annastasia Michael Olamma, 24, responded to the appeal by saying she was willing to donate one of her kidneys to Sonia, adding that it was to prove that women can help women.
She went on to reveal that she is young, doesn’t take alcohol and also believes her kidney is very healthy to donate.
Annastasia also stated that she is donating for free in the hopes that her kidney will match Sonia’s.
“Kidney donation To Sonia Ekweremadu.
