Despite frantic efforts to give her another shot at a healthy life, Mayowa Ahmed of the #SaveMayowa campaign has passed on.
Her cousin, Asiwaju Ahmed who was one of those that spearheaded the fundraising campaign broke the news on Twitter this afternoon.
Mayowa was a stage 4 ovarian cancer patient who also happened to be a HB SSS patient. Nigerians heeded her plea for help in July by raising over ninety million naira for her treatment in the US. She was eventually flown to South Africa for treatment where she died.
Several celebrities including Toyin Aimakhu (who at some point alleged that the campaign was a scam but it was eventually revealed that the problem was miscommunication), Omoni Oboli, Ufuoma McDermott were part of those that lent their voices to her cause.
May her soul rest in peace.
