A 25-year-old Nigerian woman identified as Folake has revealed the dilemma she is experiencing regarding the ailing mother of her spouse.
She claimed that because her kidney matches his mother’s, her 35-year-old husband begged her to give it.
However, the woman voiced concern that, regardless of her relationship with the beneficiary, she was too young to donate such a crucial organ.
Folake turned to social media to ask for guidance on whether she was making the wrong decision by refusing to donate her kidney.
“I am 25 years old. Married to a man of 35years. We have been married for more than 2years with a child. The issue that brought me here is that my mother in law is sick (kidney problem) and it happens that mine matches her.My husband is begging me to donate one of my kidney to save his mom. He said he loves his mom so much and will not want anything to happen to her. That if love him as I claim, now is time to prove it. I refused.How can a young girl like me that is just starting life donate a kidney to an old woman of 48years. Even if the person is my mum, she won’t even allow me to donate for her. Now hubby is acting up. Saying if anything happens to her mum, he will never forgive me. Please, am I being wicked?”
