My name is Lamin Sisay and I am a Canadian citizen of Gambian descent. My Uncle is suffering from a life threatening medical condition. He has a cancerous tumor which require urgent medical intervention.

He lives in Gambia, West Africa with limited financial means and a very sub-standard medical care system. As his relative, I would like to help get him to Europe or North America for medical care. The only way that I can do so is by bringing his story to a caring public. Please help... every contribution counts!

Diagnosis (in his own words)

The problem was discovered in January 2013 which was about 10Cm above the knee and was about the size of a Milk bottle Cap. And was somehow hard, a closed Doctor was asked and said that it was LYPOMA and I was instructed to wait for a while and see how it will develop. In March around the 26th, I started to feel Pain and visited several hospitals including the Royal Victoria Teaching Hospital Largest Hospital in the Gambia and was taken to the Radiology Department. It was then scanned and discovered that in the THYGH, there is a multi-nodular mass measuring more than 100mm length. The mass is complex with Necrotic areas within the mass. The Femoral Artery and the Vein compressed from the mass. So the blood supplying the mass is that supplied the femoral Arteries.

 I was later referred to Senegal and a BIOPSY Test was undertaken it was also found out that it has not then affected any other part/organ of my body so I was instructed to do CHEMOTHERAPY IN WHICH I WAS ALSO INFORMED THAT IT WILOL START TO DISSAPEAR AS SOON AS I CONDUCT THE CHEMOTHERAPY, which was done and yet still as you can see on the photo things are still getting worse and increasing every day. It also looks like a parasite that feeds on my blood and I still feel so much pain every day and sleepless nights like Toothache or even more.  I also cannot walk even a small distance, it so heavy about 10Kg in weight.
