Veteran actor Bruno Iwuoha recently made a stop at 104.5FM, Abuja where he opened up on his battle with several life threatening ailments.
The talented actor talked about his battle with diabetes and how he had also been dealing with Glaucoma for several years without adequate money to finance a corrective surgery.
Mr Iwuoha told shocked listerners how diabetes had cost him his sight. He said he never actually knew he was diabetic until a violent armed robbery attack landed him in a hospital.
A series of test carried out on him revealed that he has diabetes and since then he’s been managing it until the condition affected his sight.
According to Bruno: �I’ve gone to so many places; within the country, outside the country for treatment, until finally…finally, the thing [diabetes] claimed one of my sight. As I look at you now, I’m using only one sight. They call that glaucoma. And gradually, it’s affecting the other one [eye]. So, naim make, apart from places…the people who call me atimes, both the little cash they can give me…drugs and all that…but I discovered that this thing [the illness] is a lifetime something.
�And it has robbed me of the job [acting]. And now, if I get a script, it will be hard for me to read it very well. And if I read it, if I strain my eyes for so long, it would look as if someone would lead me around the house or anywhere I want to go because it will affect the only one [eye]. So that’s my problem.”
The actor is now soliciting for funds from kind-hearted Nigerians.
He needs N3.5million for eye surgery at a hospital in the US.
So far, he’s only been able to raise N200,000.
AGN Refused Him Help
Mr. Bruno said he heard about the money former president, Goodluck Jonathan, gave the AGN. However, when he reached out to the AGN president Ibinabo Fiberesima, she refused to assist him with money.
