A Leukemia Corper Needs Help!!! by tohero(m): 12:37pm On Oct 24, 2015
A fellow corper wrote

I met Joseph in NYSC camp (BATCH A 2015),
when we were called to sign up for our CDS group
(info tech). He was noticed when he volunteered
to take the list for the new recruits and also
offered to host the whatsapp group for we the
BATCH A CDS group members (till date). He was
so helpful and polite whenever he was called on
camp for any information concerning the CDS.
Joseph in my opinion has always been a healthy
and vibrant corps member because he was part
of the martial arts group while on camp. Only to
find out from other members of the CDS group
that Joseph has been hospitalized and diagnosed
with LEUKEMIA. it was such a shocker!
LEUKEMIA from my research is a malignant
progressive disease in which the bone marrow
and other blood-forming organs produce
increased numbers of immature or abnormal
leucocytes. These suppress the production of
normal blood cells, leading to anaemia and other
symptoms. It is in other words CANCER OF THE
BLOOD. luckily it can be cured, but it is a very
expensive procedure that cant be done within the
shores of Nigeria.
JOSEPH OKONKWO EKENE is 27 years old, he is
currently undergoing his NYSC in FCT abuja, he
obtained a B.Eng Electronic Engineering from
University of Nigeria Nsukka, and hails from
Enugu State. he is a very nice, loving person and
friendly to all. He is currently hospitalized at the
National hospital Abuja. Sadly Joseph’s health is
deteriorating and needs a Bone marrow
transplant ASAP. Already Joseph’s medical bill
from the national hospital has amounted to 2.5
million Naira, and he needs a minimum of 15
million Naira for the bone marrow transplant
procedure in India.
Please on behalf of our friend Joseph Okonkwo
Ekene, we the BATCH A (info tech)CDS group, his
families and other concerned corpers, plead and
ask for well meaning Nigerians, NGOs and
institutions to please come to our friend’s rescue
and please donate to the life of this promising
young man. please no amount is too small. We
plead with the general public to please donate
and also pray along with our friend Joseph. below
are his account details

Thanks. We made an outreach yesterday. We were able to get some money to get him some platelets.

Same yesterday, it was aired @ corper's corner on cool fm, abuja. Thanks to Kimberly and Team.

The struggle still continues, some individuals showed interest in helping. We pray they fulfill their promise.

Thanks for your concern. God Bless.
