A Nigerian man took to his Instagram page to narrate how his sister, Elizabeth, a sickle cell patient on oxygen lost her fight due to power outrage and no fuel excuses in Epe general hospital, Lagos state.
Read what he wrote below;
“…facing the reality of life is one hard thing to deal with! I know so many people see me looking all good and smiley for the gram! It is not always easy to hide the pains but I have been a fighter, I haven’t been fighting alone! Side by side I fought the battle of life with you Sis! Over 3 decades ago we were brought to this life with the Sickle Cell anemia! M not even going to mention how we faced rejection from our father! But I know things didn’t remain the same after we lost our mom 1997! Since then we realized she has actually been covering a big space … side by side we face terrible Crisis, life threatening pain! Let’s go for “ Sickle Cells Forum” that is ur anthem every Sat! But I hate to accept the fact that I am one! But as I said you are a fighter ! I had never been serious planning any wedding like I was with yours! Just so u know D.A I wouldn’t even bring out my camera to take pics if I know I would be wishing you a RIP with it! If I ever get mental stable i guess God has a plan! Nothing feels the same for me …I know you are in Good hands, I was not just expecting you to leave this knife in my hearth! I had said you are very wicked .. say a lot of B.S in annoyance when i heard about your death but I forgive you! Not sure I would forgive my self for not raising the funds for bone marrow transplant as soon as I thought! My World has crashed once again! Now you leaving me with 3 kids to raise! Just know they r in save hands! You would prolly be alive if your first love didn’t let you down” … if I had raised money for bone marrow transplant” …. if the management of Epe General hospital did their Job, you were trying to survive with a oxygen gas mask! Then boom nepa took light and behold the “No Fuel Excuses” just so u know if it’s possible I would split my lifetime with you! … here i am lifeless, hopeless and saying a big thank you to every nurse that nonchalantly and sluggishly attended to my sis and another thank you to. @akinwunmiambode for killing all hopes I had in Epe, Lagos … and this Great Country… Rest In Peace Aderinsola Adebola Elizabeth”
