Dear friend. Please accept the last wish of a dying woman for god and humanity. I'm Mrs. Helen Akre, 65yrs old woman suffering for lungs cancerous ailment. I want to plead you in the name of god to send your prayers of encouragement. If you ever had close relation or friend who died of cancer, you can understand my predicament. The doctor confirmed the lungs cancer has spread other parts which are going to make it very difficult for me to live. Medically they’re not sure my life spam will exceed next 60days. After receiving the sad news, I have been so devastated but I put god first in all I do who has never failed me. There is nothing that is too hard for him to do, if he has decided is the right time to call me home to rest, fine. What is bothering more is the future of my only adopted daughter Sharon, who is 17yrs and she is the reason why I am contacting you to plead in the name of god and humanity to help me save her life and future. However, my marriage with Late Sir, Kolo Juan Akre lasted over two decades without children because I was operated of fibroid at the age of 32 which damaged my womb not to conceive. God blessed me with my late husband who loved me unconditional until death do us part. He is an Ivorian but we met in London when he was working with BRITISH RAILWAY. He died on 23rd July 2005 after brief illness. May the almighty god bless his soul, Amen. After his demise, I came back to his country with my only daughter because he loved me sincerely till death. I have been living here with Sharon. When my late husband was alive he deposited the sum of £6.45 Million (£6.45 Million Great Britain Pounds Sterling with an offshore Bank. Presently, this money is still with the Bank. I have decided to donate this fund to a non-governmental, or a non religious, and or a nonprofit organization or better still an individual, that will utilize this money the way I am going to instruct here in. that will use this gift which comes from my late husband’s sweat to fund the upkeep of widows, widowers, orphans, destitute, the down-trodden, physically challenged children, barren-women and persons who prove to be genuinely handicapped financially. Please, help me achieve this goal and almighty god will reward you and your family abundantly. I want 60% of the fund to be used to help people that are financially handicapped and 40% should be use for the welfare of my daughter, help her start a new life in your country. Please, you can pray for god direction on this task. I believe god will use you as an instrument to save my daughter. Accept the last wish of a dying woman by taking Sharon as a sister, daughter and be her guardian please. I will be happy to hear from you. God will never be happy with me, if i lie with this situation. God bless you Helen Akre
