Hi. My name is Tochukwu Edward Egungwu. I’m living with sickle cell anemia. In 2012 I as in dire need of funds to travel for surgery. Skin grafts to be specific. I had pentazocine related necrosis on my arms and a very bad leg ulcer. I was referred to Miss Dee for Sickle Cell Foundation by a friend, they came to my aid, followed up on medical reports, physically came to Lagos to inspect my situation and launched a campaign immediately for me. The founder Miss Adaora Nwodo checked up on me daily and my health and progress while her and her team worked tirelessly to raise the funds, in approximately a month and a half, they raised the total of the $21,000 needed for my trip. For that I will forever be thankful. Today I’m married and I have a beautiful 7month old son. All thanks to MDFSCF. I got another shot at life. God bless them.
