14-yr-old needs aid for heart surgery


At three months, Neri Joseph, son of Mrs. Christy Joseph, a broadcast journalist and Deputy Director at Voice of Nigeria was diagnosed of aortic stenosis.

He had his first surgery at five months at the Lagos University Teaching Hospital (LASUTH). At four years old in 2012, after his parents had raised N3 million, he was taken to Vikram Hospital, Bangalore, India for an open heart surgery.

Unfortunately, the surgery turned out not successful during his follow up check up in Nigeria at LUTH. Since then, he’s been managing the crisis with medications and regular check ups.

Following a recent check-up at LASUTH, he was referred to the United Kingdom or United States of America for another open heart surgery.

As a result of the huge amount heeded for the overseas treatment, LASUTH referred the patient to Babcock University Teaching Hospital’s Tristate Heart and Vascular Center in Ogun State, where the specialists have confirmed that his aortic valve will have to be replaced as soon as possible.

Neri will be 14 years old in December. Please help us save the life of the innocent young boy so that he can have his surgery done and live a healthy life.
