Oluwaseyanu (‘Seyanu) Basorun is an Applied Geology undergraduate of the Federal University of Technology, Akure. He hopes he will graduate in the future to become a successful geologist, applying his knowledge to make his country better. Unfortunately, that dream is now threatened, as ‘Seyanu lies critically ill at the Obafemi Awolowo University Teaching Hospital, Ile-Ife diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia (Cancer of the blood). He urgently needs to be flown to a cancer specialist hospital in India for treatment.
‘Seyanu urgently needs bone marrow transplant if he is to survive. India is recommended as the place to go. Only N11m is needed to do this and give ‘Seyanu the fighting chance he desires and deserves.

They hail from Lagos State, father an engineer/farmer and his mother a teacher. They have two children, ‘Seyanu and his elder sister. The sad turn to their lives began in February this year when ‘Seyanu was diagnosed with the ailment. He has been at OAU Teaching Hospital where, at the moment, he is in a critical state undergoing chemotherapy.
Going by the meaning of his name (Oluwaseyanu – God has done wonders) ‘Seyanu is awaiting another of God’s wonder in his life and kindhearted Nigerians like you and me, are to be his instrument.
