#SaveMayowa was a cause that brought Nigerians together and subsequently, rather unfortunately divided them following reports of a ‘ruse’ that claimed the campaign was a scam. The matter was later investigated and was proven otherwise.
However, It’s so sad to report this beautiful afternoon, that Mayowa Ahmed, the cancer patient Good willing Nigerians contributed to keep alive has passed on. She died this afternoon, August 21st in a hospital in South Africa after battling Ovarian cancer for a while.
She was flown to South Africa on August 11th for treatment after kind-hearted Nigerians raised over N100million for her treatment. Unfortunately, she didn’t make it.
May her soul rest in peace.
