…My story – Debbie
As a result of Debbie’s breast cancer story that went ‘crazy’ on-line last week, Nigerian artistes have taken it upon themselves to raise funds in support of the cancer patient.
Davido fired the first salvo on Monday when he said to have donated N1million to the cancer patient.
Although he hasn’t publicly confirmed his donation, however he posted the following on his Twitter page this morning.
The campaign to ‘Save Debbie’ is being heralded by no one but popular rap act, Ruggedman.
Debbie is a medical technician suffering from 4th grade Invasive Ductal Carcinoma otherwise known as cancer of the breast.
As you read this, one of her breasts is already condemned and the cancer has moved into her second breast, including her neck.
Debbie desperately needs N6 million for surgery. Her family and friends say without the operation, she has barely one month more to live.
Championing her course on Twitter, Ruggedman has kept tweeting about Debbie, as he solicits for help from well meaning Nigerians.
“No distraction pls: Its all abt #SaveDebbie,lets not lose a sister to cancer .”
Popular comedian, Ali Baba then took it on, as he also tweets to save Debbie.
“RT @RuggedyBaba: We need 6,000 people 2pay a minimum of N1,000 into Access Bank Account number 0000216933 Idiagbonya Osasere to #SaveDebbie”
Ice Prince isn’t left in the fight to snatch Debbie from the cold hands of death, as he joins in the fight with tweets from his stable.
“We are blessed by GOD to bless others. Pls help Save Debbie
