Mother Cries For Assistance for lling Daughter to Seek Treatment Abroad
A mother of a seventeen-year-old student at Cuttington University is calling on the government of Liberia, humanitarian organizations, and all-meaning Liberians for medical assistance for her child.
Seventeen-year-old Etta Bar is suffering from a kidney problem, she is a junior student at Cuttington University in Bong County and a gradute of the Ganta United Methodist High School in Nimba County.
“My daughter is ill, she has a kidney problem and we have tried our best, but it seems to be nothing, the hospital is asking us to take her out of the Country but we don’t have money,” Madam Rose Gaye cried.
According to Madam Gaye, the sickness started back in 2020 but was not serious until 2021 when their daughter fell sick and was taken to the Phebe Hospital in Bong County, but was later told by doctors in the area that the child should be taken to the JFK medical center for treatment.
In a very sad tone, she lamented that their seventeen-year-old daughter fell sick again, but was referred to the Shimalee Hospital for further tests; all the tests conducted by JFK came out negative.
Madam Gaye disclosed that while undergoing treatment at the Shimalee hospital a doctor only identify as Dr. Barclay revealed that she could not see Etta’s Kidney, something she told the mother that mold must have gotten on the kidney.
Speaking further after the medication, she said her daughter was not getting better, and as such, they rush her to ELWA hospital in Paynesville where she was diagnosed with cancer, and later referred to JFK medical center where she is currently undergoing treatment but not getting any better.
“It has reached to the stage that we have given up, we are appealing to the world and the nation to help this child, but results from the doctor are discouraging, ” Madam Gaye said.
