Earlier this year, actress Kemi Afolabi opened up about dealing with an incurable disease that was later discovered after so many hospitals had rejected her and she had been moved from place to place.
In an interview with media personality, Chude, Afolabi touched on how much staying alive gulps from her pocket and the number of years she has to live.
4 years to go for Afolabi
A tearful Afolabi revealed to Chude that her doctors gave her five more years to live in which she has already spent one.
She continued by explaining that Lupus is not curable and she has to be on medication for the rest of her life.
Afolabi spends about N1.2m weekly just to stay alive. “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 to be able to continue with my medication…”
