Mr. Jerome was being managed for interstitial lung disease in the US before he came back to Anambra, Nigeria to spend the holidays with his loved ones. Few days into the New Year, his symptoms worsened. He struggled to breathe and complained that he was more tired than usual.

Mr. Jerome’s son rushed him to the nearest hospital/health centre in the village where he was diagnosed with acute respiratory failure. Seeing that he needed further treatment, his son reached out to us at Flying Doctors Nigeria to assist with his transfer to Lagos, Nigeria.

Shortly after the necessary requirements were fulfilled, our team was able to rapidly get Mr. Jerome to a tertiary healthcare facility in Lagos, Nigeria where the required level of care was available.

We were glad to have started the year on a good note and hope to help save more lives by saving time even as the year continues to unfold.
