Churchill Aluyah: How Treated Tuberculosis Turned Into Something Else & Left Me Fighting For My Life (Must Read + Videos)

Dear good people,

This is a request on behalf of Churchill Aluyah who is gravely ill. 

Churchill Aluyah resides in Spokane WA and has been battling Tuberculosis which was treated 10 years ago in his home country, Nigeria.  

The treatment over time has left scars on his trachea and bronchi tissues. These scars reduce oxygen supply to his right lung while his left lung is being over used and because he was in good health, it was able to sustain him until he had Pneumonia in November 2013. 

This condition reduces his oxygen intake and has made him vulnerable to oportunistic illnesses like colds. Right now, the scars on his bronchi needs to be fixed and his trachea and windpipe are currently damaged. 

A total of 9 procedures have been done where the surgeon put stents in his upper trachea to enable some oxygen pass to his right lung which only supplies about 10% of oxygen function while his left lung has 90% function and 2 stents on his right bronchi to give more oxygen to his lungs. The scar is what they are battling with. It is a unique condition that almost took his life. 

Churchill was in coma/incubated for 8 days and nearly died 5 times. His condition is so severe that he cannot bathe himself or sit up right and can only be wheeled in a bed and not on a wheel chair. Currently, Churchill is on an oxygen tank to aid him to breath. He coughs up blood, is constantly weak; he has chest pain and fever every day. 

The Thoracic surgery was done on February 13, 2014 at the University of Washington medical centre, Seattle WA.


UPDATE: It is getting more serious and Churchill's doctors have now informed him that his chances are very slim. Since 1st January 2015, Churchill has done over 20 bronchoscopic and over 20 surgeries. Watch below, the painful suction procedure he also has to go through 6 times every day to clear his airway.

Churchill after a painful suction procedure: "The pain I go through is like a trained boxer hit me for hours".

Additionally, Churchill has to make available, a medical jet for doctors in Spokane to regularly fly him to Seattle for ongoing treatments and the medical jet costs $54,000. Watch the short video below to see what I mean. 

Despite being in constant pain and being recently dealt the devastating blow that his chances are slim, Churchill remains upbeat and brave and you can even see him goofing around with the doctors and nurses through his pain and discomfort, in some of his videos on his YouTube channel. It is very touching and heartbreaking to watch, but Churchill shuns pity and explains to me: "I have seen the gate of death 5 times. I have seen and felt real fear and how it feels to be dying. I have been in a coma for 8 days. I have lived on oxygen through my mouth for weeks. It is what it is. Life is about challenges and the challenges it impacts on oneself".
