A NOTE OF APPRECIATION PUBLISHED ON FACEBOOK BY A KIDNEY PATIENT LINDA IKEJI HELPED

To so many, top blogger, Linda Ikeji is always the enemy. She is seen as the evil lurking around the most unwanted places, always snooping around to unearth some dirt to smear someone with on her blogosphere.

images-173 Simply put, Linda Ikeji is poison, a bad news, better to be kept at arms length – but not to Emma Ugolee, ‘The Gist’ host on HipTV, who has been battling kidney disease for years now. Emma has never hidden his ordeal of living with kidney disease from the public, in fact, he has taken on the job of evangelizing on the ailment, so that other people in the same condition, through him, could muster some sort of hope to cope with the disease. As usual Emma had an emergency recently and had to go for a dialysis, and guess who came through for him? Linda Ikeji. She didn’t just turn up as a concerned friend, she was there all through, from beginning to the end. Only Emma could have captured the gesture so rightly, and he did in a Facebook post, calling the rich blogger, not a friend but a sister. Read his note: “Had been on the phone earlier today with my sister right here who was not too happy with how I sounded. True to her worries, I was rushed to the hospital on an emergency tip this afternoon. Calling to find out if it felt any better and realizing I had to dialyse, she froze work, ran to the hospital and literally stood on her feet next to my bed till I was smiling. “She left the hospital this late after having amazing material impact on dialysing patients and watching me walk to my car. So going home now am thinking: This woman has been unshaken as a friend for 16 years and in the last 5 years of the struggle to stay alive, with kidney failure. Every time a hand is squeezing mine to say we would beat this in the darkest times, it is hers. “No fatigue with the love shown, no trumpet blowing, an amazing friend as would be readily testified by those that know her at the same time when I can write 10 books on fair weather friends whose level of worry would start and culminate in a 48 hour use of my face for a dp if God permitted it to go south. ……. and you want to ask why I am shouting her name at the risk of sore lungs? I love you Linda Ifeoma Ikeji. God bless you for being there.”
