8 month old baby Miracle Ibiam needs your help

Baby Miracle was born 28th of June 2012 with Hydrocephalus which is a structural defect that affects ability of the brain to clear excess fluids so the fluid accumulates therefore leading to that expansion.

Luckily, it is curable through Neurosurgery but this will cost his family N6million to have this done in India. His family can't afford it and need your help. I've spoken to his mum, (pictured above with Miracle) so this is genuine. You can call her yourself on this number - 08055575878.

To donate to Baby Miracle:
Bank: Sterling Bank - Name: Ibiam Orie Acct Number: 0011112988

Thanks guys...and yes I will make a donation, before some of you come after me naw! :-)

I wonder why Nigerians continually make things difficult for themselves.Linda,dis surgeria is done almost everywhere in Nigeria n d survival rate is so high.we have lots of neurosurgeons in UCH,LUTH,UNTH,NAUTH dis is just to mention d least n d surgery costs less dan 1million if done in Nigeria.why must pple continually travel outside for amenities n treatments dat can be gotten in Nigeria.Hydrocephalus is fairly common n treated wit placement of shunts.dey can get d treatment here in Nigeria.I have seen lots of children with hydrocephalus get treated n leave their normal lives in Nigeria unless their is sth d family aint telling us.d more dey waste time searching for 6 million,d more d child's brain gets damaged.the have wasted enough time as Ȋ̝̊̅† is.well,dats my candid opinion as a doctor.thanks

I am so happy Nigerians are responding to diz... I want to say that I know Bernice very well,she is a friend and a colleague...and she has been tru a lot...God bless us all as we give towards Mimi's surgery...may we never experience anytin like diz in our homes... Amen.

My baby had the same hydrocephalus and it cost us 9,750 naira at Luth for the operation. And she is well today and living healthy. Why are nigerians thieves? We have many capable doctors all around nigeria who can do the surgery and its even a minor one.

People,for our information,diz is d fourth surgery the young boy is going for now.He is currently seeing doctors at LUTH and India did not just come out of the blues... Please bfor you say things you do not know...leave a little space for something called ' benefit of doubt ... Do u know wat it takes to ask complete strangers for help. Hmmmmm... All hope is not lost, we know it can be done here. But he has gone through 3 different surgeries in Nigeria without much success. Now is the time to move on. Thank you and God bless u as you give.

Please people should not start taking advantage of this whole donation thing.. Hydrocephalus can be handled by a lot of teaching hospitals in Nigeria, they don't need no india. At least I'm very sure of DR EMEJULU at Nnamdi azikiwe university teaching hospital who is a renowed neurosurgeon and handles such cases with good outcome + I wonder why she waited this long to get help for this child and stil delaying things further by waiting for 6million..

This family have been going thru a lot since a week after Miracle's birth,they have been doing it alone without d help of anyone.Miracle had series of surgeries in Luth n its still d same. As a doctor wit solution pls call the number n give whatever solution u have.Over 6 million has been spent on him without any Results.Ur advice n penny would still help to Save baby Miracle.THANK YOU

There is something called secondary opinion. The mom can seek secondary opinion in UCH,Ibadan. They have world class Neurological surgeons there. It will also be far cheaper than 6million naira. I personally am skeptical about Indian treatment, I have seen enough damage done to Nigerians. For this child now, I wonder how much of neurological functions we can salvage. Well, God is on the throne.

Please dnt allow anyone refere you to hospitals in the villages in india. New delhi has got good hospitals n bet me they are nt that expensive especially for 100% success(most times people are refered to hospitals in india by quacks who re looking for hw to make more money off ur situation).you cld ask for doctor hassan's hospital maitama in abuja owned by good friendly God fearing india's. They got my 4mths old son a hospital in india,after I went thru some money hungry doctors.Another advice I think when asking for funds for health sake it wld b good if u give the name of the hospital u re going to cos dat way people would c d transparency in u,it helped in ma own case.God bless

Tru Talk says: yes u r right my dad does his dialysis at St Nicholas in Lagos we are in England but its cheaper in Nigeria, he will be having his transplant soon by the grace of God I kno we will get the money I have asked Linda for help as per publicity since we have some of the money but only got shunned his story might be published on BN and other UK blogs soon...
I am not sure why ppl run abroad our GP's here are mostly foreigners its funny and sad cos of the Actor that died after being transferred to India. There is a high success rate with transplants in Lagos and we will keep my father there travelling up and down doesn't help except you want to buy ticket for all their family members because seeing your loved ones is an important recovery process not foreign Indian nurses!!

Tru Talk says; I agree with you all Linda says I have called and the story is genuine but that's not all that makes it all ok it is the intentions of the story. It's her choice she chooses what story to publish by whatever standards but you don't even need quarter of the money demanded we all know that but does she No!!

On facebook, one illiterate fuck can upload a picture of this child, and then use his/her horrible Aba Grammar School English to make up a story. At the end of the story, he/she will tell you to click "like" for a prayer and "share" if you have a heart. There will be at least 379,238 "likes" and 209,887 "shares". Where are all those 'likers' and 'sharers' now?

Now that it matters, now that something can really be done, even if it's by writing a few words of support for the child's mother, no one is saying anything... God help me and help us all.

She has tried other options in Nigeria!!! This baby has undergone 3 operations in Nigeria!!!

How can people be to so insensitive to say she's trying to get money for herself!
You have a couple of options, call the number to speak to the mother, donate or not donate. But for the sake of God, motherhood, humanity or whatever you believe in please please don't make insensitive comments.

Miracle a child of testimonies and wonders. God bless you. You are beautiful baby.

*Linda. Na wa forour Naija people o! A musicia/ actor can earn millions but a Dr who does brain surgery can not.
By the way, this child's brain has been compressed for too long and I don't believe a shunt at this time will reverse the mental deficit that has probably set it already.
Linda can you research the cost of health care in the UK/US and India so taht your readers can be better educated? Delivery in US cost about $6 to 10,000

I AM A FATHER OF A HYDROCEPHALUS CHILD AND I CAN FEEL WHAT THIS FAMILY IS GOING THROUGH. MY WIFE AND CHILD WERE IN LUTH FOR MORE THAN FIVE MONTHS FOR THIS PROBLEM. FIRST SHUNT INSERTED DID NOT WORK AND THE OPERATION WAS REPEATED TWO MORE TIMES BEFORE IT STARTED WORKING WELL AND THE BABY IS FINE. HOWEVER, I THINK MANY PEOPLE HERE ARE PISSED OFF BECAUSE OF THE AMOUNT MENTIONED. SIX MILLION IS ACTUALLY BOGUS. AT LUTH IT USED TO BE NINE THOUSAND NAIRA WITH SOME FRACTION TO DO THE OPERATION BUT OF RECENT IT HAS BEEN INCREASED TO AROUND FIFTEEN THOUSAND NAIRA. ADD THIS TO OTHER EXPENSES LIKE DRUGS, TESTS FEES, ETC, WE SHOULD BE LOOKING AT AROUND FIFTY THOUSAND FOR A SHUNT OPERATION. YOU DON'T NEED TO GO TO INDIA TO HAVE A SHUNT OPERATION DONE. IT IS NOT A SERIOUS OR COMPLEX SURGERY. LUTH HAS ALL THE FACILITIES AND DR BANKOLE IS ONE OF THE BEST IN THIS FIELD IN THE WORLD. (I MUST AT THIS JUNCTION SAY A WORD ABOUT DR BANKOLE. HE IS AN ANGEL, A DOCTOR WITH A DIFFERENCE. IF ALL NIGERIAN DOCTORS ARE LIKE HIM, WE WILL NOT BE COMPLAINING ABOUT OUR HEALTH PROFESSIONALS. THERE ARE OTHER CONSULTANT NEUROSURGEONS IN LUTH INCLUDING DR KALU, DR OJO, DR NWACHUKWU (A VERY NASTY MAN), ETC BUT BANKOLE IS IN A CLASS OF HIS OWN.)
FROM WHAT I CAN SEE FROM THIS BABY'S CASE, THE PARENTS DID NOT SEEK MEDICAL ATTENTION IN TIME. THAT IS WHY THE CIRCUMFERENCE OF THE HEAD GREW THIS BIG. THERE ARE MANY OF SUCH CASES AT LUTH (WARD D2 AND WARD E4.) USUALLY THE PARENTS FIRST OF ALL GO TO PASTORS TO SEEK FOR SPIRITUAL INTERVENTION RATHER THAN SEE PROFESSIONALS IN TIME. EARLY INTERVENTION IS ESSENTIAL AND THE CS FLUID CAN BE DRAINED DAILY USING MANUAL METHODS BEFORE THE SHUNT IS INSERTED. ALL THE SAME IT IS NOT TOO LATE. GOD WILL DO IT FOR THEM. IF ONE SHUNT OPERATION IS NOT SUCCESSFUL, IT IS REVISITED THAT IS, THE UNSUCCESSFUL SHUNT IS REMOVED AND ANOTHER INSERTED UNTIL THEY GET IT RIGHT. YOU DON'T NEED TO GO TO INDIA FOR THIS. EVEN IN INDIA, IT IS THE SAME SHUNT THEY WILL INSERT. ALL OVER THE WORLD, THERE IS NOTHING ELSE THAT IS DONE TO HANDLE HYDROCEPHALUS CASES OTHER THAN INSERTING SHUNT TO CARRY THE CS FLUID FROM THE HEAD TO OTHER PARTS OF THE BODY.
FOR NIGERIANS WHO ARE INTERESTED IN HYDROCEPHALUS PLEASE GOOGLE FESTUS FAJEMILO. THIS IS ONE NIGERIAN CHILD WHO HAD THE CONDITION AND THE PARENTS STARTED A FOUNDATION IN HIS NAME. THEY HAVE A WEBSITE AND THEY COORDINATE ACTIVITIES OF HYDROCEPHALUS CHILDREN IN NIGERIA. IT IS AN NGO AND THEY GIVE ADVICE AS WELL AS MATERIAL HELP TO PEOPLE WHO ARE HAVING THE CONDITION. THEY WERE HELPFUL TO US. THERE IS ANOTHER NGO WITH HEADQUARTERS IN UGANDA BUT HAVE A REPRESENTATIVE IN NIGERIA. ONE LADY I CANNOT REMEMBER HER NAME IS IN CHARGE OF THAT NGO HERE IN NIGERIA. SHE IS ALWAYS AT THE NEUROSURGERY DEPT OF LUTH GIVING CARE, ADVISE AND ENCOURAGEMENT TO PARENTS. HER NGO ALSO GIVES MONEY TO INDIGENT PARENTS WHO CANNOT AFFORD THE MONEY FOR THE SHUNT OPERATION. CERTAINLY WE DON'T NEED INDIA FOR THIS NOR DO WE NEED SUCH A BOGUS AMOUNT OF MONEY. I HAVE GONE THROUGH THIS NIGHTMARE AND I AM ONLY POURING MY HEART OUT WITH THIS LONG EPISODE. THANKS FOR YOUR PATIENCE IN READING.

Why do people just open their mouth and talk like zombies? Nobody is forcing you to help. Rather than calling her a thief why not zip it? Must u comment? And Linda are you not ment to preview the comment before you publish it? From what I understand this is the baby's forth surgery. It's hard enough what the parents are going trough, it's also hard enough for them to ask the public for money. I believe they must have spent all their savings trying to save this kid to the point that they have to go public asking for help. So madam Linda, letting an anonymous soul call them a thief is very hurtful of you. And all theses anonymous people on this blog that take the delight of insulting, please get a name. I don't need to know the woman to know how hurtful and devastating your comments would make her feel. Also Aunty Linda can you indicate that this is the fourth surgery that the baby would be having.
It is a blessing to give indeed.

By God's grace,the surgery will be successful. I keep wondering, if almost all surgeries are done in India, the medical doctors in Nig shld be ashamed of themselves,seriously. Even d govt for not providing needed facilities, shld hide their faces in shame. Whts d essence of churning out thousands of docs from med schls when they can't even carry out majority of the sugeries.Its either India, UK, America, Germany, Spain...Those that manage to carryout minor surgeries usually end up leaving instruments in the patient's body. Its appalling!

@ Ajayi Abass, are you for real? You deserve to be slapped. I'm sure that the scenerio u painted above is exactly what you would do if u were in d same position as this family. Can't u be civil? You probably don't have 1000 to give. You really do not have to comment mbok. @ prince jobless: as much as I always see ur crude comments, I have finally come to the same conclusions other libers have... You are insane! How can the child's health issue be the fault of his mother? Which woman will knowingly but her child in harm's way? How do u sleep @ night after making snide remarks all day? For heaven's sake grow up. Haba! U no be pikin @ all.
That said, I wish y'all would know that the parents would have tried nigerian hospitals & probably even alternative medicines. I'm a mother & know what it feels like to give birth & have ur child ill. Its a feeling would never wish on my worst enemy. Baby Miracle..

FYI she does not have to take every case that is brought to her, but let's not forget of the cases she has championed. She is giving back to society. To what extent she does this is not for you or anyone else to judge.

Hmmn. am a living testimony. Dr bankole and his crew in luth are brilliant. its just the luth/Nigerian system that's messed up. Poor facilities, fraustrated nurses. but the Neuro surgeons give in their best. above all God heals. wish you luck Dear miracle.

Less than 10k u say??? Not true pls....

FACT!!! This is one of the commonest neurosurgery procedure done in Nigerian teaching hospitals and for as low as 500k or even less (i am a doctor and have witnessed many). If they have the money to take the child outside the country...great! but i think it's unfair asking the public for donations to go to India for something that can be done under 2hours in Nigeria...thats more like a "choosy beggar"....my 2 cents, y'all can bark , its my opinion.

9750 or what ever is probably to register in reddington. People are so hilarious. All I say is pray not to be in this situation cos u won't remember all comments said. Doctors can do this and that,r u sure? u know they have to keep developing their knowledge everyday with patients illness. What if this issue is more than the current knowledge they have? When talk we need to critical in thinking and don't just blab. U all who's got solution,her number is right at d top of the screen call her and introduce her to the most qualified doctor u know in Nigeria. Probably that's how God wants u to help. Otherwise u have not made any impact and if God touches u to donate then please do. God bless u on the one u choose to do as far as it leads to the boy's survival. That's the end point and not to have ur opinion.

calling people daft and toad and then blessing a child only makes you look confused*tongue out* i wish that child the best but i still support the doctors opinion about the great neurosurgeons we have at our teaching hospitals (cos i have witnessed a lot too). so going to India might not make any difference if you care google hydrocephalus!

*LInda. Naija people. We are all experts at things we don't have a clue on.
1. It's reasonable to assume that this family has done its homework. They are not asking for advice on where to go for the brain surgey. They need donations. All those people cursing each other over comments, pls put a stop to it.
2. If you live in UK/us, you will be reluctant to have your family members treated at LUTH/ LASUTH/ UCH etc. These places do not qualify to be called hospitals in these modern days. Dirty/ rude Drs/ Nurses/WORKERS. Why are rich Nigerians all going to have babies aboroad? Is it not becaise of lack of trust of the Nigerian healthcare system? Its good to be patriotic but lets also use common sense.
3. You will hesitate to take a plane from Lagos to NY FOR 50Naira while others charge 200,000Naira. Beware of free or cheap things, they almost always end up with complications.
