According to a brother  Innocent Ihejirika, Emmanuel Ihejirika, while Blessing and the mother had received their passports, two donors of bone marrow are yet to get theirs.

However, Blessing bleeds through the mouth, which, according to LUTH, is caused byshortage of platelets. Blessing needs platelets urgently before their departure.

Kind-hearted Nigerians are called upon to donate through Blessing’s mom, Good-seed Ihejirika, via her account, GTBank 0615685653. She can also be reached on 08060584460.
