Please Help Little Taiwo Live Healthy & Happy.

BREAKING NEWS - 23 MAY 2014: TAIWO HAS A 100% SPONSOR!!!!!! PRAISE GOD! YES, A DEAR SISTAFRIEND OF MINE AND HER HUSBAND HAVE DECIDED TO FOOT THE FULL BILL...NOT JUST THE SURGERY BUT THE TRAVEL AND VISA COSTS AS WELL. i AM SO OVERWHELMED. PAPAGOD, THANK YOU!!!!!!!  PEOPLE,  GIVE YOUR LIVES TO GOD. HE LISTENS AND HE MOVES. SUDDENLY.
*****************************************************************************************
The last time I did something like this, it was for Carol Johnson I believe. Even then, I did not know her and was not the one that actually initiated it. I just shared someone's  message because it was so touching. Sadly, she still passed on a while after. 

This time is different because I know the family of this little girl who needs help. Taiwo is the five year old daughter of a younger Ekiti Sister of mine, Joke. Joke is the daughter of one of my Papa, my Prof's closest and dearest friends who sadly passed on years ago too. Little Taiwo has Detrocardia which, simply put, means, when she was born, her heart was situated abnormally more to the right of her chest and is causing a number of other issues. On top of this she is also dealing with Cyanotic heart disease. Again simply put, it means she is not getting enough oxygen in her blood cells. I have pages and pages of documents from her doctors explaining Taiwo's condition and breaks my heart that this little girl and her parents are dealing with so much. Joke has already lost one twin as Kehinde did not survive. Please let's do what we can to ensure she does not lose another.

I cannot get over how wise she looks. Please, I know
times are tough but prayerfully think about this
This Little Cutie needs our help.
Let's give it. God never forgets.

Taiwo is already way late for her final surgery (She had one when she was a baby and was meant to go back in 2013). To go for the needed evaluation and get the surgery done will cost her parents USD8,500. They don't have it. They have tried but have not been able to raise it what with having to take care of all Taiwo's health care needs and all. To travel to India and the surgery done at the Miot Hospital Chennai, India, they need our help.  Please join me in giving it. It is one thing when a mom cries out to you for help but when Taiwo's Grandma called me, my heart just dropped. She is so anxious for her grand daughter. 

You remember last year, you all helped me raise money for the Raziela Foundation as your way of wishing me a Happy Birthday? You were all so wonderful and I will never forget that and I know neither will RF. I hate to appear 'greedy' but my Birthday is in 10 days time. Please could you make this your birthday gift to me for this year? If this child can get the medical attention she needs and go on to live a healthy, happy life, I cannot think of any better present for me this year. Well, maybe just the return of our Chibok girls....Both are at the top of my wish list right now.
