    Unfortunately I dont have any links or contacts, Ssergit. All I saw were pics on FB and my heart jumped! I have sent a message to the lady who posted the pictures. Looks like she lives in the U.S, so she may already have enquiries from people who also want paypal details. Will feed you back here as soon as she responds.

    See here for direct link to FB pics:FB HELP!!!


    I pray she gets enough help so she can be treated in time! This is too sad to see! :(

    "This lady here is 29year old Oluwabunmi Esther Akinleye, adopted sister and PA to top Yoruba actress Ronke Ojo popularly known as “Oshodi Oke”
    Bunmi has bone cancer as you can see in the picture, which she has been battling with for about three years now.

    She needs N7 million for a surgery in India. The money will cover her plane ticket, treatment and the needs of a relation that will accompany her.

    If you can help, then please send donations to:
    Name: Akinleye Oluwabunmi Esther
    Account Number: 0301010319178001
    Bank: First City Monument Bank

    Or you can contact Ronke Ojo on 08023023338.
    God bless you."

    3 years????? and the so-called 'Top Yoruba actress' have not thought to use her popularity/fame to help this lady get help??? some of these popular people in Nigeria are pathetic and downright selfish to a bloody extreme!!

    3 years??? were they waiting for her to die first? haba!

    meanwhile, the lady on facebook replied me with same info:
    seems they are not considering that donations could be coming in from outside Nigeria. and all that bank fees that would be paid to donate to this girl could be added up to make up more money for this lady's medical help!

    why won't they create a universal payment option for donation??? arrgh

    I just got a domiciliary account that I think people from abroad can send foreign currency into directly.

    Account no-0302280319178001
    Name-Esther Oluwabunmi Akinleye
    Bank-FCMB

    PS-This is direct info from RONKE OJO herself.

    ....here is a different opinion:

    Does anybody knows any doctor or non profit organizations in the US that can offer surgery on a non profit basis? We know for a fact that bigname hospitals all around the U.S does this kind of unusual surgery all the time. They actually fly the patient in from just about any part of the world and undertake such unusual tasks all the time. We've see cases from India, Iraq, Eastern Europe etc on the news all the time. I'm sure if this girl's case is popularized well enough, some organization or Hospital or doctor will take interest.

    My main point? Besides asking for donations, lets make calls & write letters to hospitals, foundations, CNN etc.
