He has been ill for eight years and is currently bedridden at Godspower Hospital, 32 Road, C-Close, House 7, Festac Town, Lagos State, and has also lost his sight.
Recall in January his son Uche Jnr took to social media to make a passionate appeal to Nigerians.
His post read, “Living a happy life of contentment was our family’s greatest plan until our father Prince James Uche fell sick; everything changed.
“Our lives and that of dad has been under the mercy of some Good Samaritans who have assisted us all these while in paying dad’s hospital bills; clothing us and making sure we feed twice or thrice a day; but today we’re helpless as the Samaritans say they’ve also run out of resources to continue dad’s treatment.
“Now we’re homeless and helpless as the hospital where we live our small lives with dad threatens to throw us out on January the 3rd 2017 if no one harken to our cry.”
Speaking to PREMIUM TIMES from a movie location in Awka, Anambra State, popular Nollywood actress, Ejiro Okurame, who is currently spearheading the fundraiser, said, the actor, is in dire need of funds to save his life.
She said, “ He has now gone blind due to high blood pressure and diabetes; been in the hospital for a year, nine months now, he needs to undergo an urgent kidney transplant and eye surgery in India which will cost about N15 million but he currently owes the hospital in Lagos about N2.5 million. We are pleading to Nigerians with please come to his aid.”
God bless you as you help!
