Formally called Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE), it is according to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), an autoimmune disease in which the immune system attacks its own tissues, causing widespread inflammation and tissue damage in the affected organs. It can affect the joints, skin, brain, lungs, kidneys, and blood vessels.

The young lady said that doctors at the initial stage couldn’t detect what was wrong with her, a condition that made her visit different specialists in different hospitals before finally being diagnosed of SLE.

She said: “I am Okoli Josephine Adaeze, I have been suffering from S.L.E for the past 20 months, I was moving from one hospital to another before I was finally diagnosed of lupus,” Miss Okoli said.

“The doctors couldn’t figure out my condition on time. I went to Hematologist, Gastroenterology, cardiologist and so on.

“They kept saying that they didn’t understand what I was passing through until I finally got diagnosed of lupus after eight months of moving from one hospital to another.

“I even tried local medication, but to no avail. I was confirmed dead by some doctors in Anambra teaching hospital and eventually woke up in the mortuary.”

Miss Okoli lamented that she was further diagnosed of heart failure, liver and kidney enlargement, making the cost of her treatment to “triple” and she is not working but only relying on help from her family and friends, who have become exhausted and can nolonger afford her medications while the pain and other symptoms continue to increase.

“I have been suffering from a very aggressive case of S.L.E. I was also diagnosed of heart failure, liver enlargement and kidney enlargement. The cost of my medications has tripled, I do not work and I can barely buy my medications myself.

“My family and friends have served as a pillar of support to me for the past 11 months, now they are out of cash. I am currently experiencing extreme swelling of legs/feet and hands due to an extremely leaking gut. I am in pain; I have bruises all over my body from the swollen legs and hands.

“I experience pain 24 hours a day. My pain relief medications no longer work for me.”

She is soliciting help to raise ₦15 million in order to be taken to the United States for better treatment of the disease.

“I can’t help myself anymore, I have to seek help.

“I need the best medical attention I can get now, as I think Nigerian hospitals I have visited cannot manage my condition.

“If you know me, you will know that I do not ask for help, I try to treat my problems myself. But this is beyond me now, I do not want to take the life God has given me.

  1. In 2019, I read about Dr of Multivitamin herbal Care in a health forum, this herbal centre has successful Lupus disease herbal treatment and treatment for another list of terminal diseases, i contacted the herbal centre via their email and purchased the SLE, systemic lupus erythematosus herbal remedy,when i first started on the multivitamincare org treatment, I was completely immobile due to my long term SLE condition. I was taking high doses of Azathioprine and Methotrexate medicines, which caused many bad side effects. After i started on Lupus herbal therapy, my condition greatly improved. Its been 4 years since treatment, i can never be thankful enough”I would recommend www multivitamincare org to anyone suffering from Lupus condition.
