Nollywood actress, Kemi Afolabi, has cried for help from Nigerians after battling a terminal illness, Lupus, that costs her millions weekly for treatments.
In an interview with media personality, Chude Jideonwo, the actress revealed that she had been diagnosed with lupus and she has just five more years to live.
Lupus is a disease that occurs when the body’s immune system attacks tissues and organs.
“I have lupus. It’s not curable. You just have to take medications for the rest of your life.”
At a point I was exhausted after spending so much, I said i will stop and just wait for death to come ….but I brazed up for my daughter and have to continue spending the N1.2million on the medication doze weekly to survive….I have sold my cars, property, capital for business etc…..and Funke Akindele has been helpful, Toyin Abraham, Mercy Aigbe and others reached out and have been there…but I still need more support”
Quoting her doctor, she said, “Make sure you are with your loved ones. At least, you still have up to five years.”
