Veteran Nollywood actor, Bruno Iwuoha, urgently needs help to restore his sight. He was a guest recently on the Brekete Family Program on 104.5FM in Abuja. And while on air, he opened up about his current battle with diabetes/glaucoma. He revealed that he never knew he had diabetes until a violent armed robbery attack landed him in hospital. He said:

Quote
“I’ve gone to so many places; within the country, outside the country for treatment, until finally…finally, the thing [diabetes] claimed one of my sight. As I look at you now, I’m using only one sight. They call that glaucoma. And gradually, it’s affecting the other one [eye]. So, naim make, apart from places…the people who call me atimes, both the little cash they can give me…drugs and all that…but I discovered that this thing [the illness] is a lifetime something.And it has robbed me of the job [acting]. And now, if I get a script, it will be hard for me to read it very well. And if I read it, if I strain my eyes for so long, it would look as if someone would lead me around the house or anywhere I want to go because it will affect the only one [eye]. So that’s my problem.”


The actor said he needs the help of kind-hearted Nigerians because he has been referred to a US-based hospital where he is required to have N3.5million. So far he has about N200,000.
