“I’m the Father of Obaloluwa Perez Akinsola. He’s our two year Old son . He was 2 years last year September. He’s two years and 4 months old now.
“He was diagnosed with a condition which in a lay man’s language is ‘hole in the heart’ the doctor told us that there are two holes in his heart and that the two holes need to be operated on as soon as possible before it lead to something disastrous as we were told.
” What we were told is that the surgery should be done as soon as possible and that the surgery is curative in the sense that once the surgery is done, it’s the final solution to the problem . If the surgery is not done on time , it will lead to an irreparable condition that can lead to sudden death .
“We went to inquire about the surgery, from two notable hospitals in Nigeria , we were able to get discounted price at one of the teaching hospitals and the cost of the surgery and some other things involved is N5 million.
We have tried our best to come up with what we can but it’s an huge sum for us , that’s why we are calling on well meaning Nigerians , parents and people who are also able to have children as well ( fathers and mothers) to come to our aide financially so that Obaloluwa can be able to be operated this february, so that he can have a better chance at living”.
Mr Akinsola however calls for donations from well meaning Nigerians to be sent to the following account.
