Music director and producer, Don Jazzy has donated two million naira to Funmi Lawal, the UNILAG law student diagnosed with Malignant Sarcoma. Lawal’s story made the headlines on August 20, 2012, with many soliciting help for her to stay alive. The cost of her full medical treatment was estimated at N4m. Barely 24 hours later, Mavin Records CEO Don Jazzy donated half of the total amount needed.
Funmi’s cancer started at the shoulder region but has become so extensive that it might affect other parts of the body if surgery is not done as soon as possible. Don Jazzy’s donation is great but Funmi still needs the full amount for her surgery. Read her story below;I’ve had this shoulder issue since like 7yrs now. Though I had surgery sometime back and I’ve gone to other places too, but no head way (couldn’t lift the hand) but when law school came, I dint have time for the hand but studies.. Then it started getting bigger at d shoulder region and bigger by d day. I went 2 my hospital and they asked me 2 do some test like MRI, fine needle test and all. On d test, they said there is a MALIGNANT SARCOMA. A doctor friend then referred me to an expert doctor in this field… He said its a kind of bone cancer and its extensive, he said I must start RADIO therapy fast to shrink d tumor and stop any spread. He also said that there is a test called “bone scan” dt will show my whole body to know where it has spread to and this test can’t be done in Nigeria because d machine is not in Nigeria yet, that I must find a way as soon as possible to go do d surgery outside the country because its life threatening… He said if I lose my hand its better than losing my life. Meanwhile my brother contacted some doctors online and hospitals that specialize in this kind of tumor.. He was the one that gave the estimated price via email”
