Save Baby Ighodalo

I am Michael Iyorowe O. Please I need your help in paying for my baby hospital bills. Baby Ighodalo Michael is of a set of twins (boy and girl) given birth to by Rose Michael at 6 month as premature (neonate), at Ifako Jaiye General Hospital Lagos. After delivery, we (the parents) were informed that there was no incubator to keep the set of twins. A letter was given to us to look out for hospitals with incubator pending when there is space for the twins. After long search, we were able to get an incubator at a private hospital (Inton hospital 6 Adenelcan Salako by Catapillar bus-stop, Ogba). Their charges per week is N150,000 per child for the use of incubator. A week later, our baby girl was pronounced dead due to stress. I have not been able to pay the hospital bill and recently the doctor called to say that my baby boy has issues with breathing, explaining that he is not breathing normally. After much prayers and with the help of the doctors, he was stabilized and right now we are told that baby needs blood transfusion. We are in dire need of support to enable us carry out all requests from the doctor and clear our bills.

Please help save the life of my son, you can visit both hospitals to verify this.
