In a heart-wrenching story, 25-year-old Raji Kikelomo is in urgent need of financial assistance to undergo life-saving therapy against cancer.
Currently on admission at Lagos State University Teaching Hospital (LUTH) in Lagos, Kikelomo is battling a debilitating health condition that requires immediate medical attention.
Kikelomo’s health troubles began two years ago, with frequent episodes of excruciating pain and discomfort. Despite seeking medical care at various hospitals, her condition has continued to worsen, leaving her unable to carry out even basic daily activities.
Doctors at LUTH have diagnosed Kikelomo with ‘Nodular sclerosis lymphoma, a lymphatic cancer that affects the immune system which requires specialized treatment here in Nigeria but the cost of the procedure is beyond her means.
Speaking to reporters, Kikelomo’s friend who didn’t want to be mentioned expressed her deep concern about her financial situation. “She is in so much pain, and I know that the therapy is the only way to make her better, but she cannot afford to pay for it”, she said.
Kikelomo’s family and friends have launched a fundraising campaign to raise the necessary funds for her therapy.

The doctor’s report on Kikelomo’s health reads in part. “Miss Raji Kikelomo was referred to the LUTH cancer treatment late 2021. She completed the six (6) cycles of recommended chemotherapy consisting of Adriamycin/Bleomycin/Vincristine/Dacarbazine (ABVD) due to her minimal response to the
“standard chemotherapy. She also had radiotherapy to the chest with minimal response. There are four (4) subtypes of Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. She has the subtype called Nodular Sclerosing (NS).
“We urge members of the public to support her in any way they can, so that she can get the therapy she needs to regain her health.”
As KiKelomo fights for her life, her story is a reminder of the urgent need for improved healthcare services in Nigeria.
It is also a call to action for individuals and organizations to support those in need of medical care, especially those who are unable to afford it.
