TDCF Children: Samuel Akinsoji

Samuel’s Story

Samuel is a 10-year-old quiet, reserved, loving and extremely well-behaved and well-mannered boy. He loves soccer so much and was saddest about not being able to play when he was diagnosed with Wilms’ Tumor in January, 2016. He is a very strong child. Samuel has been through a lot.

After innumerable scans, blood tests, doctor visits, Surgery, Radiotherapy, and Chemotherapy; he has been able to fight his way through to this point. Samuel is still fighting. His cancer treatment took a great toil on his body and the recovery process has been long and slow. But he never gives up, he never acts out, he never abandons his manners.

Samuel is indeed a fighter and would love to play more soccer with his friends. His mum is so proud of him and hopes to see him happier.
