Nollywood icon, Amaechi Muonagor, has reached out to the public, hat in hand, as he airs his struggle with a paralyzing stroke, seeking both financial aid and prayers to help him in this current chapter of his life.
In a circulated video, the ailing actor was seen laid on his back, saying the struggle of how the stroke ordeal reared its ugly head and the medical path he’s been treading thus far.
He recalled how he was swiftly transported to the hospital in the wake of his initial stroke attack, where he stayed a few months. However, as his condition showed no signs of wellness, he was relocated to Nnewi Teaching Hospital in Anambra, where he is undergoing treatment.
Amaechi went on to explain that seven months ago, on a day fated of the misfortune, he had just finished up a taxing shoot alongside his colleagues Emeka Ani, Patience Ozokwo, Rita Edochie, and Ebele Okaro on a movie set. Just as he was preparing to hit the road in his car, he found himself suddenly struck by a debilitating stroke.
Since that ill luck day, the actor disclosed that his stroke condition has grown worse .
He can no longer move his legs or walk freely, and half of his body is now paralyzed. He apologized for not sharing this publicly earlier, as he never anticipated the illness would persist for so long.
Now, he is reaching out to kind-hearted Nigerians, needing financial assistance for his paralysis, which has caused significant swelling in parts of his body and hindered him from eating. He also mentioned that during his three-month stay at the current hospital, they have run out of the necessary medications for his treatment.
Amaechi added that he is in desperate need of help from his colleagues, fans, and friends.
