“I Am Dying”
-Sick Woman Cries For Intervention

By Grace Q. Bryant
An SOS call is being made on behalf of Madam Quitalyn Kollie who is suffering lungs damage for the past two years.
Presently, Madam Kollie is undergoing temporary treatment through oxygen at the John F. Kennedy Medical Hospital in Sinkor, Liberia where she is confined to her hospital bed.
Over the weekend, on her sick bed, Madam Kollie explained that doctors have advised the family to seek proper medication for her outside Liberia; either in India or America preferably and that the total cost for the operation is US$ 75, 000.
“I have been to several hospitals in Liberia. I went to Ghana for treatment and when I returned, the sickness started again and JFK told me that I can only live on oxygen for now until I do lungs transplant,” she cried.
She explained that the sickness started like tiredness and fast breathing but added that everywhere she went in Liberia for medical opinions; she was diagnosed of heart failure.
“They had me on heart medicine but sadly it was not working; not until one day a specialist came from Nigeria and he sent me to do a test, it was after that test he diagnosed that my lungs was damaging,” she revealed.
“Since I came back from Ghana, I have been using the oxygen; I do everything in bed with the oxygen,” She lamented.
Madam Kollie, the mother of five children and a resident of Brewerville, is calling on Civil Society Organizations and the government of Liberia to help her adding, “Anyone who is listening to me; knows me or not, I want them to come to my rescue. I am dying; I need help for the sake of my children; my children are small-small and I don’t have money,” she cried.
Meanwhile, Madam Kollie can be contacted through the family on cell numbers 0888999113 for inquiry or contributions.
