Momodou Jobe, a 37-year-old man and resident of Nema Wasulung Kunda, is seeking financial support from the government, philanthropists and individuals to go for an overseas treatment.
According to a medical report issued by Edward Francis Small Teaching Hospital, the patient was brought to the hospital due to difficulty walking and sphincter disorders a year ago.
The report concluded on recommendation that the patient must travel abroad where he can be studied by other diagnostic tests, such as MRI and EMG.
Jobe, who walked into The Point offices on Monday 29 July 2013, said he is seeking financial support from anyone who can help him undergo overseas treatment as his sickness cannot be treated in the country.
Jobe, a teacher by profession, added that he had written to the President of The Gambia, the Ministry of Finance through the Ministry of Basic and Secondary Education and to the Gambia Teachers Union but still has not got any support from them.
Meanwhile, anyone willing to help Momodou Jobe can contact him on the following numbers (00220) 9937421 or 00220 - 6359937.
