Samuel D. Sawah, alias ST, a former player of River Cess’ National County Sports Meet squad to reporters that his son, Samuel Sawah, Jr., was diagnosed of brain tumor, and has been advised he undergoes surgery abroad.

Sawah said he was told that the surgery cannot be done in Liberia, and so he was advised to take the boy to India. According to him, his son has been surviving on tube and injection- temporary healthcare intervention to suppress the severe pains and weakness the child goes through until the surgery is performed.

The father, who is a student, informed that he lacks the capacity to raise plane ticket and afford the medical bill of the struggling child; hence, he’s appealing to people of goodwill to help him.
