Life, according to a 34-year-old Edwin George, is becoming unbearable for him as his face swells each day thereby increasing his pain.
George said his condition started as toothache in 2019 and later decided to seek medical checkup at some hospitals in Monrovia.
He narrated that efforts to ease the pain in his tooth or to extract it did not materialize as he was unable to settle his hospital bills.
George, a resident of Genemu, Margibi County, is appealing to well-meaning Liberians, state actors and President Dr. George M. Weah to help him seek further medication.
“As I speak to you right now, the pain from the head is terrible for me and it is causing me serious pain; that is why I am appealing to philanthropists and members of the Margibi Legislative Caucus, the Superintendent, the Senators and Representatives, including well-meaning Liberians who have the hearts for their fellow humans to help me seek treatment either in Liberia or abroad,” George painfully appeals.
George said doctors at the ELWA Hospital told him that he was suffering from toothache and asked him to return the next day but was unable to do so due to the long distance.
Mr. George said after few days, he went to the JFK Hospital in Monrovia but the illness was not settled and later, he started applying traditional leaves, but his condition continues to deteriorate.
The 34 years old man said he applied several medications to the illness but to no avail.
George explained that his two sons are currently residing in Monrovia with a relative and does not have anyone to help him as the children’s mother is seriously ill in Genemu, a village nearly 30 miles away from Kakata City, Margibi County.
He said based on the severity of the illness, he cannot eat nor drink properly because of the swelling of his face.
George said based on his present condition, he has been stigmatized in his community.
“Anytime I am walking on the street some people call me all types of names, some say I am a criminal, while others say I am a Zogoe; please help me,” George cried.
