Onyekachi Chuks who was diagnosed of pancreatic in January 2018, is a graduate from the University of Lagos and currently works with Cars45 Ltd. He is 36 years of age. Onyekachi Chuks is currently asking for donations from well-meaning Nigerians to support his treatment and this is his story. In his words;
“Sometime in January 2018 I usually have this on and off tummy bite which with control relieves me. The second week in February to be precise on an early Tuesday Morning at about 1:30 am woke up with the most fearsome abdomen pain and I had to be rushed to the hospital. I have been since then treated for ulcer, after 2 months of no relieve and managing pain at work, I was referred to another hospital.
At the referred hospital, I was diagnosed by a Gastro Enterologist and was required to run a couple of tests and scan and it was discovered in April that I had Pancreatic Cancer that had metastasized to the liver. A liver biopsy was done to confirm the medical claims.
I was then scheduled to meet with an oncologist to discuss treatment and prognosis, which all I can hear is attack the cancerous cells. I had to stop work due to this as I have lost a large amount of body weight and gas out quickly due to low blood count.
I have not enjoyed a perfect sleep for about 3months as all that happens at night is me agonizing, squeezing on my tummy and constantly getting back massage because of the affected organs.
I am currently on a Chemotherapy and Targeted therapy treatment. I have completed 3 sessions (6 chemo procedures) with 3 sessions left to go. I am scheduled for a review test and scan for the 1st of July to review progress so far which I am optimistic report will show Gods own report.
Medically if the cancer cells have been reduced then it will require me to run a surgical procedure for the pancreas.
I don’t for now know where that would be done or the cost assigned to it but your contribution would go a long way to our preparation for defeating this ailment called Cancer”.
