CHOPFIRE

MAY THE SOUL OF THIS INNOCENT CHILD FIND REST IN THE LORD.

THIS CHILD HAS BEEN LEFT TO DIE AND ROT BECAUSE HE COMES FROM THE SOUTHERN CAMEROONS. SOME YEARS AGO WHEN THE LIKES OF FRANCOISE FONING,MONS TONYE BAKOT NEEDED MEDICAL ATTENTION, THEY ARE EASILY TRANSFFERED WITH TAX PAYERS MONEY TO FRANCE FOR MEDICAL ATTENTION.

THE DEATH OF YOUNG FUH SIMPLE SHOWS WHAT POSITIONS THE YOUTHS AND THE YOUNG STARS OF SOUTHERN CAMEROONS ORIGIN HOLD IN THE HEART OF THE YAOUNDE REGIME.

ONCE MORE, MAY HIS SOULD REST IN PEACE

numvi

Poor Child, may your innocent soul rest in perfect peace, and my your parents also have some closure despite this tragic loss. God bless...

JVK - London UK

There is no reasonable excuse for this little boy's death. Global scientific records and statistics show that this type of cancer i.e. retinoblastoma is one of the easiest cancers in children to treat, with a 95 to 98% success rate. Can someone therefore justify this boy's death? Ofcourse not! He died of carelessness and negligence by...God knows who! May Fuh's soul rest in peace.

Retinoblastoma is not a complicated cancer, it is one of the easiest to treat! To read more about this cancer, which has a 95 - 98% success rate of treatment click on this web link.

DR TAN OF CAMEROON

DEAR ALL
I REALLY DID NOT LIKE TO SEE THIS PHOTOGRAPH, ON THE FRONT PAGE OF THE POST. IT,S VERY PAINFUL TO RELATIES AND FRIENDS OF THE FAMILY.
AS A PHYSICIAN, MALIGNANT TUMORS[CANCERS] ONE OF THOSE REASONS , THAT I GOT VERY INTERESTED IN MIRACULOUS CURES.
THE SADDEST TIME IN A PHYSICIAN,S LIFE IS TO SEE THE REACTIONS OF A FAMILY WHEN A CHILD DIES. I ESPECIALLY NEVER GOT FUN OF PEADIATRICS , BECAUSE , I HATED TO SEE BABIES CRING , BECAUSE OF PAINS, BECAUSE MOST TIMES , THERE,S A MOTHER THAT CRIES BY THE SIDE .
THIS HAS INSPIRED DEBATE ABOUT HEALTHCARE DELIVERY AND COST IN CAMEROON. I KNOW THAT IF IT WAS THE CHILD OF ON EOF THE HIGHLY PLACED, IT WOULD BE DIFFERENT. BUT CAN THE SYSTEM TAKE CARE OF ALL CASES LIKE THIS ABROAD?. MAY BE THAT IS WHY BARRAC OBAMA WANTS NATIONAL HEALTH CARE FRO ALL CHILDREN IN AMERICA. THE ANTIONAL MEDICAL COUNCIL AND THE MEDICAL FAMILY MOST BE LISTENING TO YOU.

LITTLE FRIEND, PAYSAN, REST IN THE LORD. YOUR FRIEND DR THOMPSON AKWO NTUBA MD

mk the southerner

Is just unfortunate that the child was not that of CPDM maggots. Not to talk of being a Southern Cameroonian child with few people on the top to cry for his immediate evacuation.

Prince of Ntamulung

It is really unfortunate that this child died of a somewhat curable disease.
Everyday, thousand of people die in Cameroon from curable diseases such as Malaria. The medical system badly needs reform, just as everything in Cameroon.
But it is very skewed to just see the problem in the angle of Southern Cameroons. The lives of common people from Fura Awa to Kolofata do not revolve around political considerations.


May the Soul of
I think that the medical system in Cameroon should be

Prince of Ntamulung

totaly reformed. May his soul rest in eternal peace.

Che Sunday

The kid is dead, but what I am reading here is a one-sided flow of criticism. Can we step back and listen to what the doctor had to say. "The case was in an advanced stage, and little could be done to save the boy." We can only cure diseases, not death. There was a "friends of Fuh's" group trying to raise funds to see if he could be helped. Yes, we have a rotten administration, but everything in Cameroon does not have to go through Yaounde. If this kid had died in the Yaounde public hospital, we will say the place is a slaughterhouse any way since everyone there is corrupt. This was a private hospital, and there are millions in Cameroon who can not afford services in a private hospital. His form of cancer may be the easiest to treat, but he may just be one of those statistical datum that falls within the 5% untreatable ones. I will like to shy away from placing the misfortune of death at the alter of nationalistic fervour.

Optimist

It really is a pity that a small boy as Fuh has so suffered from retinoblastoma. May his soul, an innocent soul rest in the peace of the Lord.
It surprises me that reactions herein only narrow little Fuh's death to political insinuations. It is true Cameroon has an incompetent administration, but can we try to understand that there could be other reasons why things sometimes happen the way they do...Doctor said Fuh's case was already advanced...that could be where illluck came from. Lets not load our minds with the the ill-natured government.

Radicalbrother

Optimist,
I can see how optimistic you are...Doctor said Fuh's case was already advanced...that could be where illluck . This child has been used as a Guinea pig
That is a mature way of saying that you don't know what to do.
It is alledged that the said report was sent to the foreign doctor who were interested in the case. Can we investigate this statement? Excuses are for loosers.
Doctors both in private and state owned hospitals in Cameroon are all fake doctors. Laziness is often confused with patience and ignorance is covered by one's position.
Even in the least cosmetic surgery,a patient will be killed from anaesthestic over dosage as the person wacthing the ambu bag as patient is breathing sleeps off in the course of the surgery.
GOD SAVE US FROM THESE CHARLATANS

Berry

You know sometimes when children have problems especially when it is physical, instead of seeking treatment early, the parents 'wait it out' and hope it will get better, perhaps because of no funds or because they are afraid of stigma. The time frame between when this story was aired and when the child dies shows that this was already in its advanced stages before they sought help. See how big the tumor got! If they had sought treatment in its early stages, there would not even have been talk of evacuation for treatment.

In any case, its the past. It doesn't help to dwell on it and lay blame. What can be done in the future to educate the masses?

Theresa

his case at that very point was to far gone but had there been a screening early on this whole thing could have been avoided.where are the the people in this world that cn spend thousands on a pair of jeans and act like they are people who care about the world but with their millons and billions of dollars wheres the help? they could go with out a new outfit once and awhile and send it to places that need it. they wouldnt let this happen to their child. with all the money in this world where is the help for these helpless children.
