April 20, 2020  –  
My Dad has been diagnosed with Stage 4 Lung Cancer. My mom passed away 9 years back and my Dad is all by himself in the ICU in Omega Hospital, Hyderabad. Myself and my siblings are US citizens and are unable to go to India. My Dad’s Oncologist is not sure about my Dad’s chances and has indicated to us that my Dad might not have much time. I am reaching out to see if there is any help I could get for me to go to Hyderabad and take care of my Dad for whatever time he has left.

He was an immigrant from Nigeria and his wife from Cameroon.  He was a simple working-class person, survived by three young children and wife. As they were struggling for meeting the living expense, an unexpected, huge funeral expense, estimated $15,000 was almost impossible to meet. His family approached for TEAM Aid’s assistance.
